Excitement Is Building

How excited are the Duke players about facing Kentucky?

"This is what you play for," forward Chris Carrawell said. "Everyone wants to play the best to prove themselves. This is what it's about."

It won't be easy for the Blue Devils and Wildcats to top their last meeting for a regional title. They played what many consider to be the greatest NCAA tournament game of all time in the 1992 East Regional final.

Duke won, 104-103, in overtime when Christian Laettner made a shot at the buzzer after catching a three-quarter-court pass from Grant Hill.
