But here's let note that Duke's 81-77 victory against Louisville might have been the greatest quarterfinals game in the history of conference tournaments.
Kennard, the ACC's leading scorer, went 1 for 9 from the field in the first half and 8 for 11 in the second to score 20 points.
"It was a typical game for our conference", Krzyzewski said. That was a big-time game. "He's a really good player, and we just tried to limit his mobility in the offense".
-The Blue Devils haven't won an ACC Tournament in the past five seasons - their longest streak since 1993-98.
The first game between these two, back on February 11 in Cameron Indoor, came down to the wire with Duke claiming a 64-62 win, and Wednesday was the same. They were met with stifling man-to-man pressure from the Blue Devils.
Duke took its first lead since midway through the first half at 65-64 with 8:06 left, and eased ahead to stay on Kennard's 3-pointer with 4:52 left that made it 73-70, the basket coming during a stretch of 10 straight points by the sophomore guard.
"We could not stop them transition in man", Krzyzewski said postgame regarding his switch to zone. "We went through a lot of ups and downs". I'm not OK with Donovan Mitchell's blocked shot and the fact that he got his other foul - and he didn't foul him on either play. "So this was a big stepping stone for us".
