The Duke basketball team continues its NCAA Tournament run on Sunday afternoon. 

The universe would never allow Mike Krzyzewski and Tom Izzo not to meet in the final season for the Duke basketball head coach, and it’s happening on the biggest stage.

Duke and Michigan State will battle once again for the chance to advance to the Sweet 16 on Sunday afternoon in Greenville, South Carolina. The Blue Devils are13-4 in the all-time series against their rival.

Krzyzewski holds a 12-3 record against Izzo, but the Spartans got the laugh between the two programs the last time they were matched up in the NCAA Tournament as Michigan State prevented a Final Four berth for Zion Williamson and RJ Barrett.

The Spartans had not been playing good basketball entering the NCAA Tournament, losing seven of their last ten games, but they picked up two victories in the Big Ten Tournament before losing to Purdue in the conference semifinals.

The Spartans seem to be a better matchup for the Blue Devils than Davidson, and its crafty guards, would be.

Sunday will be a battle between two outstanding teams and two Hall of Fame coaches. All eyes will be on Greenville, South Carolina.
