Duke led 36-33 at halftime, however.

When the Big 12 Tournament rolled around, Udoka Azubuike sprained a ligament in his left knee to render him a 7-foot, 280-pound cheerleader.

Deadly accurate from the right corner, Newman dominated the overtime, was named the Midwest Regional's outstanding player.

Duke's Trevon Duval scored 20 points, two shy of a career high. It required overtime to do so, but when the final buzzer sounded, it was Kansas that celebrated a 85-81 victory.

Malik Newman nearly singlehandedly pushed the Jayhawks into the Final Four. The Blue Devils did just that, time and time again, until it had the lead in the final minute. "And whatever happens after this, we'll sit down and talk about it and just take it day by day".

The Jayhawks rolled to the regional finals in 2016 before running into red-hot MI, which is likewise headed to San Antonio.

- Eric Olson reporting from Omaha, Nebraska. Everybody's hot; for the first time since 2010, all four of the lot won their conference tournaments.

Neither team has shot well. Forwards R.J. Barrett and Cameron Reddish have already signed letters of intent, forward Zion Williamson has publicly declared his intention to play for the Blue Devils and Tre Jones - the younger brother of Tyus Jones, the one-and-done point guard on Duke's last national championship team in 2015 - also has signed. He drained his free throws.

On Monday, Howard posted a photo to Instagram of a scouting report for Duke that Jay Jay wrote up three months ago as an exercise to impress his dad.

The freshman came in averaging 10 points but shooting just 42 percent from the floor and 28.7 percent from behind the arc. With 1:51 left, Newman hit the second-biggest shot of the game, his second 3-pointer of the extra session.

KU would regain the lead, but Duke led 68-67 at 4:22 on a bucket by Carter. The Mississippi State transfer scored 32 points, including all 13 of Kansas' in a dramatic overtime period, to send the Jayhawks back to the Final Four for the first time since 2012. Now the Blue Devils await the National Basketball Association draft decisions from several potential one-and-done freshmen with next year's top recruiting class arriving over the summer. And Allen gave Duke a three-point lead 72-69 by sinking two free throws at 1:25.

The Jayhawks, as they did against Clemson on Friday, are benefiting from a huge home-court advantage.

Afterward, Self couldn't stop talking about what a great game Svi played, and most of that time was spent discussing the defensive job he did on Bagley. KU's campus in Lawrence is a three-hour's drive from the CenturyLink Center. Azubuike was hit with his fourth foul with 11:43 to play.

Villanova is headed back to the Final Four. "They love one another and I had no doubt we could get to San Antonio".

Donte DiVincenzo and Mikal Bridges each added 12 points. "It came down to crucial plays in the last two minutes of the game". It had four 3s in Sunday's win, but it was their defense that stood out in this one.

He led everyone with 30 points despite missing 15 of his 24 shot attempts. The freshman point guard had 13 points through 20 minutes, and closed the half with a quick four-point flurry. Jarrett Culver had 11 points for Texas Tech, which ends the season 27-10 following its first berth in the regional finals.
