DBP: Marshall Plumlee with Grayson Allen after the ACCT win over Notre Dame

DUKE WINS! Final score: Duke 81, Louisville 77.


It looked like Duke was going to go packing until David Levitch took a dirty attempt to rile up Grayson Allen. That was the catalyst. That was the moment the game changed.

Two other factors: Marques Bolden gave the Blue Devils a solid presence when he checked into the game. (He needs more minutes!) And switching to ZONE defense.

Jayson Tatum fouled out near the end of the game but no to worry. Luke Kennard still kept the Blue Devils alive. Both were tremendous in this game. 25 and 24 points, respectively.

It was a thrilling end and it’s good to see that the Blue Devils amplified themselves to get the win.

Duke plays UNC tomorrow at 7:00 PM ET on ESPN/ACCN in the semifinals.
