Duke 71, Michigan State 61, (final): After opening the second half shooting 3-for-16 from the field, Michigan State was able to convert some easy baskets late courtesy of a backcourt turnover by Duke and a handful of transition opportunities.

Duke succeeded at slowing the game down late, utilizing excellent patience on the offensive end and maintaining its willingness to attack the basket and draw contact. The Blue Devils took advantage of Rasheed Sulaimon's penetrating ability, and the freshman made 5-0f-6 free throws in the final three minutes to ensure that the surging Spartans remained at arm's length until the final buzzer.
