The Duke Blue Devils are moving on in March Madness after a legitimate scare against three-seeded Texas Tech. But Paolo Banchero and Co. made sure that this was not going to be Mike Krzyzewski's final game as they advance to the NCAA tournament's Elite Eight after a 78-73 win.

Paolo Banchero was vocal after Duke's win sounding off on the team's ability to elevate their play when the moment called for it.


“All year, in the biggest moments, we've always stepped up, and there's no bigger moment than this,” Banchero said after the game. “I don't know about these guys, but I've never played in a basketball game like that. When you are out there … it's not like you're even thinking. You're just playing to win, and you're playing extremely hard. So when you are doing that, you are not afraid of the moment as a team.”

Banchero led the way for the Blue Devils with 22 points, four rebounds, four assists and three steals on a solid 7-for-12 shooting from the field.

With Duke trailing at halftime, they managed to take the lead past the midway mark of the second half and came up with the necessary stops to take control of the crunch time action.
