Coach K Quickly Shuts Down Reporter's Question About Grayson Allen

Coach K celebrates a win with Grayson Allen.

Duke is on to the Elite Eight. The No. 2-seeded Blue Devils got past Syracuse in the Sweet 16 tonight.

The win was a close one. The game came down to the final minute.

Duke ended up winning by four points, 69-65.

There was a questionable play by Grayson Allen in the final seconds. With the Blue Devils up by four and the final seconds ticking off the clock, Allen contested a 3-pointer by Syracuse, with the only way for the Orange to tie the game being a 3-pointer plus a foul.

Allen, of course, did not foul. But it probably was a little too close for comfort.

That's what many thought watching the game, anyway. Coach K did not think this.

Krzyzewski was asked about the play after the game. He quickly shut down the reporter.

OK then.

Duke is off to the Elite Eight, where it'll face No. 1 seed Kansas with a trip to the Final Four on the line. That game is set to tip off at 5:05 p.m. E.T. It will be televised on CBS.

We can't wait.
