INDIANAPOLIS—The road ends here for Duke.
"In this situation, you want to play your best basketball game," Ryan Kelly said. "We would have had to play our best basketball game to beat that team."
Duke did not play its best basketball in the season-ending, 85-63 loss. Louisville's game plan was the primary reason for that.
It took 11 minutes and 26 seconds for Seth Curry to attempt his first shot. He only got three in the first half. All were tightly contested. All missed.
“It kind of threw us back at first,” Curry said of the Cardinals defense. “We didn’t know what they were in.”
