Coach K led Duke to beat Gonzaga.

In the National Collegiate Athletic Association men's basketball tournament, Duke is headed to the Final Four for the 16th time. They had a 66-52 win over Gonzaga last night.

Coach Mike Krzyzewski, praised his team's solid defense against Gonzaga, especially in the first half.

"Look, they average about 80 points a game. They're the top offensive team in the country. So we felt pretty good about holding them to 26."

It's Coach K's 12th trip to the Final Four. He celebrated his thousandth career win earlier this season.

"My past is not important right now. My present is incredibly important. Just being with these kids and sharing this moment and this Final Four... I'm so happy for them and to be with them."

The Blue Devils take on Michigan State Saturday.
