A career-high 37 points by sophomore forward Matthew Hurt brought Duke back from 12 points down, but the Blue Devils were not ultimately able to pull off Saturday’s comeback against Louisville. After the Cardinals missed a game-winning shot at the end of the second half, they took advantage of overtime at Cameron Indoor Stadium in Durham, North Carolina, emerging with their 80-73 edge.
As a result, Duke’s four-game winning streak snaps and the NCAA tournament comes into question once again for head coach Mike Krzyzewski’s 11-9 (9-7 ACC) team.
Louisville (13-5, 8-4), meanwhile, boosts its own March Madness hopes after it was sidelined from Feb. 3-17 with coronavirus-related postponements.
Where do the Blue Devils stand with a couple of regular-season games remaining?
