No. 6 Duke Falls to No. 2 Louisville in Elite Eight

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- Plumlee finished with 17 points and 12 rebounds. Curry added 12, all in the second half.

The Blue Devils (30-6) needed Curry to come up big as he did against Michigan State if they were going to have any chance against the Blue Devils. But Curry didn't take a shot until almost nine minutes into the game, and missed each of his three shots in the first half.

This was only the second time the Blue Devils have reached the regional finals and failed to make it to the Final Four. The only other time? In 1998, when the Blue Devils lost to eventual national champion Kentucky.

The loss prevented Krzyzewski -- for now -- from tying John Wooden's record of 12 Final Four appearances.
