(3) Duke Blue Devils vs. (4) Louisville Cardinals

Sunday, March 30th

Analysis: Louisville’s 6th ranked defense against Duke’s 2nd ranked offense. Rick Pitino against Coach K. Jabari Parker against Russ Smith. Old versus young. Defending national champions against the all-time winningest coach in men’s basketball history. This would be awesome. This would be epic. Sit back and enjoy. Cardinals advance with a shot to defend their title.
