Zion Williamson shares simple reason for Duke's historic comeback

The five Blue Devils formed the deadliest lineup that the world of college basketball has seen in action this season and successfully implemented the change in plans from their legendary head coach during the late stages of their 71-69 win that left the Cardinals and their fans in total disbelief.

For more than 30 minutes of game time, Louisville pitched the flawless game.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Looking exhausted and beaten while trailing Louisville by 23 points, Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski told his players they would win the game.

Coach Mike Krzyzewski and Zion Williamson reacted to an "unbelievable" moment after No. 2 Duke pulled off an improbable win Tuesday against No. 16 Louisville. This was a young team in a tough spot, getting outplayed on the road and absolutely beaten down by a Louisville team that, for 30 minutes, totally dominated almost every aspect of the contest.

While the game didn't feature one of those thunderous dunks or blocks into the 11th row that have become so commonplace when he takes the floor, Williamson still found a way to cause Twitter to implode upon itself. How? "Louisville's a very great team, but we just had to play harder than them". It was a little frustrating at first.

Yes, it was a dogged defender named Jordan Goldwire - a seldom-used sophomore guard prior to his breakout performance - who made a name for himself to a national audience by relentlessly forcing the Cardinal backcourt into making hurried decisions and multiple mistakes. He came in, played excellent defense.

With 9:13 left to go in the game, the Cardinals had built a 59-36 lead on Duke. Duke gained confidence with every bucket, celebrating loudly and embracing the challenge of mounting this historic comeback.

It didn't start well for Duke, but it didn't end well for Louisville. Duke scored just 10 points during the first 12 minutes of the second half, which allowed Louisville to jump out to a 23-point lead.

It shouldn't be lost how close Louisville came to holding on for this win.

The Blue Devils kept up that pressure, eventually tying the game 69-69 after Reddish got hot from 3-point range. Both shots were good looks that just didn't fall, but those misses followed more than a dozen small defeats in the quest for ultimately victory over the Blue Devils. They probably were more deserving of winning.

The win improved No. 2 Duke's record to 22-2.
