The North Carolina Tar Heels outlasted the Duke Blue Devils in Saturday night’s Final Four showdown, sending head coach Mike Krzyzewski into retirement a little earlier than he’d have liked.
The game was officiated pretty evenly. Both teams had players in foul trouble. North Carolina’s Armando Bacot fouled out in the waning moments of the second half. Duke’s Mark Williams and Theo John finished the game with four fouls apiece. So, neither coach has much to complain about in that regard.
