SWEET SIXTEEN: DUKE

While Duke is getting ready to take on Purdue (9:57 pm, CBS) in a Sweet Sixteen game, we are reminded of a few relevant facts about the Blue Devils.

*Head coach Mike Krzyzbmk4ski leads all active head coaches with 71 NCAA Tournament wins in his career.

*The Blue Devils advance to a regional semifinal for a second-straight season and 21st time overall.

*This Duke team has also posted their highest win total (31) since 2005-06.

*Starting in the 2000 season, the Blue Devils have reached the “the Sweet 16” in eight of the previous 10 seasons. During that same period, Duke has lost six of those eight third-round games.

*T.A.H. has never published a photo of Coach K smiling before today.

Here are some Duke links related to tonight’s game.

*Duke gives up speed for size…

*When is Jon Scheyer going to go back to making crazy faces AND scoring lots of points?

*Does raised floor give Purdue an edge?

*Duke knows they’re due/overdue an Elite Eight appearance.

*Nobody’s talking about Duke – that’s weird.
