Duke pounds the Mountaineers, to advance to the national championship game. Another great performance by Scheyer, Singler, and Smith puts the Devils one win away from being the 2nd straight Tobacco Road champs. Duke never let the Neers come up for air during the game, and rained 3's all day. Another plus for the Devils was zoubs big rebounds on the boards. It was tough to see Butler go down like that, but the Devils kept moving foward to blow out the Mountaineers none the less. This was a sweet moment for Duke, taking down the Big East team that gave Duke a slap in the face 2 years ago by not just beating them, but laughing at them after that game. Duke proved that they were easily the better team and look to take down the hometown favorites, and 24 game winning streak Butler Bulldogs Monday night, for a 4th national title. Go Duke!
