Duke will not be heading to the Final Four in 2019.
That wouldn't be such a shocking statement if the Blue Devils didn't have the roster that they did this year. Many in the college basketball world came after Coach K after the loss, even though a Tom Izzo-coached Michigan State team is always a worthy opponent. Media and fans alike claimed a roster led by Zion Williamson and RJ Barrett should have, at the very least, made the Final Four and are now calling the legendary Duke coach into question.
The loss was tough for Duke fans but they did get to enjoy one of the most exciting seasons of basketball while it lasted.
