No. 1 overall seed Duke advanced to the Sweet 16 after surviving an incredible upset bid by No. 9 seed UCF, 77-76. In the final play of the game UCF was somehow unable to get the ball in the basket despite several near misses.
After the game, Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski was seen consoling several heartbroken UCF players on the sideline.
While speaking to Tracy Wolfon Coach K seemed stunned that Duke actually survived and expressed his sympathies towards UCF players and coaches.
