"They gave us a lift, an awesome verve off the bench", Jefferson said.
-Louisville is 15-3 with three championships over its last seven conference tournaments, reaching the title game five times. Nobody seems to know what is going on with Grayson Allen, but Duke was able to win without him on Wednesday. "He didn't punch back, which was a good decision on his part". Perhaps most convincingly, Allen attacked off the bounce.

Besides Mitchell, the Cardinals (24-7) will also enjoy depth and rest advantages over the Blue Devils. 4 and 5 they were here.
"The key in the second half was the defensive rebounding from our perimeter, which led to us fast-breaking", Krzyzewski said. That was a big-time game. "When that happens, Great teams take it, and that's what we did". That team could win it all.
You know what I'm talking about.

Maruti plant violence: 31 workers found guilty, 13 of murdering GM
Lawyer Rebecca John, who represented the workers, confirmed that 117 of the 148 accused have been acquitted of all charges. The violence had left over 40 people injured, mostly supervisors.
Krzyzewski: "Today was just joy". For me and my teammates, we wanted to get a No. 1 seed, and we blew that opportunity today.
That his Cards didn't could be traced to Allen. The score was tied at 33 at intermission, despite Clemson holding an advantage on the glass as well.
Louisville's dominance of the paint was expected considering their overwhelming frontcourt size and depth as well as the quickness and athleticism of guards Quentin Snider and Donovan Mitchell.
Kennard scored just three points (1-for-9 shooting) in the first 20 minutes, while Allen had no points and received a technical foul for slamming the ball on the court.
The first brought the flailing of arms and legs that we've come to associate with this histrionic hoopster. He is playing through injury and trying to find his form, but it is hard to see how Duke can win without Allen at his best.
There was a Kennard layup and an old-fashioned 3-point play by Tatum. But he was called for his third foul with 6:34 left in the first half. Forty-two seconds later, they were ahead. He immediately put his arms up, and knocked down the free throws. It drew a different sort of roar from Louisville fans and the neutrals in the Barclays Center. One felt like "a little kid". We're continuing to grow and learn and get better each and every day.
"I love his game", Pitino said.

Louisville wants to play this game in the 60s. They really do. It's not often talked about - sometimes it goes in your favor.
A little like last year's NCAA final, when Villanova beat North Carolina, the ACC and Big East will go head to head this week in NY. They will play second-seeded and 16th-ranked Florida State in the quarterfinals tonight.
-Duke has gone 7-3 since Mike Krzyzewski returned to the bench in early February, a mark that includes Wednesday's second round win over Clemson. "They were just coming at us and we had to do something to stop momentum".
There's only one Louisville guy National Basketball Association guys are looking at - Donovan Mitchell. The upshot was a frightful shot by Quentin Snider, a 3-pointer that barely reached the rim.
"We're not anxious about that", he said. Allen said when asked. For years, those schools would come to NY to play their conference tournament in Madison Square Garden. "He responded to what we talked about". "He responds. That's just who he is". I got his back all the time.
Brooklyn suddenly had been transported to North Carolina.
