Duke stormed back from 15 points down in the second half to beat Oklahoma State 68-59 on Tuesday night in the second round of the Norfolk Regional and advance to the Sweet 16. Connie Yori’s Nebraska team will face the Blue Devils on Sunday.
Yori released a statement on playing Duke.
“Duke is one of the most talented teams in the nation. They have a roster filled from top to bottom with college All-Americans, All-ACC players, high school All-Americans and USA national program players. It seems like they are in the national championship discussion every year, and there are some really good reasons for that. They have great players and great coaches. It will be a great challenge for us to take on Duke Sunday in Virginia, but we are looking forward to the opportunity to play in the Sweet Sixteen again.”
