West Virginia vs. Duke Line

The West Virginia vs. Duke line opened at Blue Devil's -2 ½ at Bookmaker.com Sunday evening.

Duke is the only number one seed heading to the final four after beating Baylor by a score of 78-71.

Nolan Smith scored 29 points and the Blue Devils returned to college basketball's big event for the first time in six years. Jon Scheyer added 20 points for Duke.

West Virginia meanwhile beat Kentucky Saturday by a score of 73-66.

Joe Mazzulla scored a career-high 17 points in his first start this season and West Virginia handled a cold-shooting Kentucky team stocked with future NBA players almost from the opening tip for a 73-66 victory in the East Regional final Saturday night.

"It's something we've been preaching," Butler said. "Not even just two more. Ever since we won our first game. Five more, four more, three more. It doesn't mean anything unless you win the whole thing."

Mountaineers coach Bob Huggins, back with his alma mater, is in the Final Four for the first time since taking Cincinnati in 1992. It's an even longer stretch for West Virginia -- Jerry West was the star of the team 51 years ago, and not yet a Hall of Famer or NBA logo.

"The first day I was here, I told them I came back to win a national championship," Huggins said. "I came back to win it for the university, having played there, and for the great people of our state."
