Though Duke Coach Mike Krzyzewski says he doesn't feel it himself, his Blue Devil players have made a point to mention their desire to get Duke into the Final Four again.

Duke is seeking to end a three-year absence from the Final Four, its longest absence since earning seven Final Four berths in a nine-year span from 1986-1994.

"These kids, for whatever reason, feel a need for us to get back there," Krzyzewski said. "I tell them we don't need to get there to be back. We are back."
