Duke will either play rival North Carolina in the Final Four, their first meeting in the NCAA Tournament, or Cinderella, Saint Peter’s depending on who wins on Sunday evening.

On Saturday night, Duke took care of business and overwhelmed Arkansas en route to a 78-69 victory.

Four Duke players scored in double figures, led by 18 from forward AJ Griffin as Coach K’s team built a commanding first-half lead. They didn’t let it slip in the second half.

Now the Blue Devils get to celebrate, cut down the nets, then prepare for their first Final Four appearance since they won the title in 2015.

March Madness: Who does Duke play in the Final Four?

Duke will play the winner of Sunday’s game between Saint Peter’s and UNC in the Final Four.

Yes, Duke is a UNC win over Saint Peter’s away from facing their bitter rival in the NCAA Tournament for the first time.

Fans of the Blue Devils may have a bit of a dilemma deciding who they want to root for in that matchup between the Peacocks and Tar Heels.

On the one hand, facing the No. 15 seed Saint Peter’s would give them a better chance of advancing to the national title game.

On the other hand, a matchup with UNC and the chance to avenge their regular-season loss at Cameron Indoor Stadium is too juicy an idea to ignore.

Whoever greets Duke at the Final Four, the Blue Devils will know they are two wins away from sending Coach K off to retirement on top.
