Tennessee vs Duke Review


Duke’s first campaign following the iconic coach Mike Krzyzewski’s retirement ended on Saturday in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

Olivier Nkamhoua led the Volunteers with 27 points, and they frustrated a Duke team that was heavy on freshmen by playing their customary aggressive defense.

In the Sweet 16 on Thursday at Madison Square Garden, Tennessee will take on either the No. 9 seed Florida Atlantic or the No. 16 seed Fairleigh Dickinson. Duke finishes their inaugural campaign under coach Jon Scheyer with a 27-9 record. With a 10-game winning streak coming into the game, the Blue Devils had the second-longest winning streak in the country.

During that time, they had also won the ACC Tournament and destroyed No. 12 seed Oral Roberts in the first round. Duke struggled to find a rhythm against the physical volunteers. The East Regional is now open for grabs after No. 16 seed Fairleigh Dickinson shocked the college basketball world by defeating No. 1 seed Purdue on Friday. If the Volunteers can defeat the winner of Sunday’s game between FAU and FDU, they would have a great chance to duplicate the program’s longest NCAA Tournament run by reaching the Elite Eight next week.
