Final Four Highlights: (1) Duke 81- (7) Michigan State 61

04/04/2015

150404_Duke-MSU_640x358APINDIANAPOLIS- Justise Winslow scored 19 points, Jahlil Okafor added 18 and Quinn Cook pitched in 17 to lead Duke to an 81-61 win over Michigan State in a national semifinal game at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Duke’s balanced scoring overtook an early Spartan lead and the Blue Devils were never challenged. Michigan State led 14-6 out of the gate, but after Okafor’s dunk with 9:38 remaining in the first half, Duke never trailed and led by as many as 20 three times.

Spartan forward Denzel Valentine scored five 3-pointers and 22 points in a losing effort as Duke advanced to the national championship game for the 11th time, the ninth under Mike Krzyzewski.

Kevin Kugler and Clark Kellogg called the action on Westwood One Sports.
