A year removed from a stunning early tournament dismissal, Duke has had another successful season. Although the Blue Devils didn’t win the ACC Tournament Championship, they still received a selection committee bid as the No. 1 seed in the South region bracket. Under the direction of Mike Krzyzewski, who is the most winningest coach in NCAA history, Duke knocked off No. 16 Robert Morris in the round of 64. And the Blue Devils added another week to their season after defeating No. 8 San Diego State, 68-49. With the win, Duke advances to the Sweet 16 where it’ll meet No. 5 Utah.

After receiving a selection committee bid, Utah joined the dance floor. In the round of 64, the Utes knocked off No. 12 Stephen F. Austin, 57-50. The next round, Utah topped No. 4 Georgetown, 75-64. The win advances the Utes to the Sweet 16 – their first since 2005.
