Littlejohn Coliseum, Clemson, South Carolina
CLEMSON, S.C. -- Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski called a timeout in the final minute, gathered his beaten Blue Devils around him and let them listen as the Littlejohn Coliseum crowd celebrated a Clemson win like few others."They shouldn't forget this loss," Krzyzewski said. "This is as bad as you can play."
