Streeter Lecka/Getty Images(HOUSTON) -- The Duke Blue Devils (32-4) are headed back to another Elite Eight round after taking care of fifth-seeded Utah (26-9) 63-57 on Friday night.
Justise Winslow had 21 points and 10 rebounds in the win and head coach Mike Krzyzewski was proud of the entire team.
"This has been one of my favorite groups. They've been easy to coach and they really get along. There's only a good attitude, only a good attitude and a willingness to learn," Krzyzewski said. "Sometimes freshmen don't learn that until they're older. But these guys knew it from the beginning. That's why they've had a special year."
Duke will playing in their 20th regional final and 14th under Krzyzewski and will take on second-seeded Gonzaga on Sunday.
"He played phenomenal. He was outstanding. He was the best player on the floor," Duke center Jahlil Okafor said of Winslow's performance. "Maybe because he's in Houston or maybe because he's 19 now. It was fun to watch."
Utes guard Brandon Taylor scored 15 and forward Dallin Bachynski added 11 in the loss.
