My Player of the Game
Cassius Winston
Overall Game Analysis
Michigan State came to play. They were able to weather the early second half run Duke went on. Cassius Winston was incredible as always. Goins hit a clutch 3 at the end, which has haunted him all year. Tom Izzo prepared his players for this game and it showed. Coach K didn't coach his players as well as he could, especially Cam Reddish.
