Louisville beats Duke to reach Final Four

INDIANAPOLIS — With tears in their eyes and Kevin Ware in their hearts, there was no way Louisville was losing this game.

Russ Smith scored 23 points, Gorgui Dieng had 14 points, 11 rebounds and four blocks and top-seeded Louisville put aside the shock from Ware's gruesome leg injury to beat Duke 85-63 on Sunday and earn a second straight trip to the Final Four.
