      Duke's Curry, defense shut down MSU

      Seth Curry shot Duke right into the regional finals and put Mike Krzyzewski on the verge of another major milestone.

      Curry scored 29 points to lead the second-seeded Blue Devils past third-seeded Michigan State, 71-61, on Friday night and into the Midwest Regional final.

      If Duke (30-5) beats top-seeded Louisville (32-5) in Sunday's regional final, Krzyzewski would tie John Wooden's record with 12 Final Four trips.

      Michigan State (27-9) just couldn't keep up with Curry and Duke's shooters. The Spartans were led by Keith Appling with 16 points and Adreian Payne with 14.

      Curry's sixth 3 of the game broke a 38-38 tie early in the second half, sending Duke on a 9-0 run. It never trailed again.
