Tied at 70 against the No. 9 Blue Devils with 32 seconds remaining, Elliott dribbled across half court and swished a 25-footer, a dagger in a much-awaited national-TV showdown at the New Jersey Meadowlands. Elliott finished with 24 points and 10 rebounds. "You don’t wear Elliott down," said Duke coach Mike Kryzwzewski.
