INDIANAPOLIS — Duke didn't even have the rest of the day to celebrate reaching the regional finals.

By the time the Blue Devils' game with Michigan State was over, the day was, too.

"Ask them quick because we have a game tomorrow," coach Mike Krzyzewski said in the postgame news conference. "Literally. It's already Saturday."

Duke and Michigan State didn't tip off until about 10 p.m. Eastern on Friday. So by the time the Blue Devils wrapped up their 71-61 victory, it was after midnight in Indianapolis.

At least the Blue Devils don't have an early wake-up call Sunday. The Duke-Louisville game is the second game, tipping off about 5 p.m.
