NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA - APRIL 02: Caleb Love #2 of the North Carolina Tar Heels shoots a layup against the Duke Blue Devils in the first half of the game during the 2022 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament Final Four semifinal at Caesars Superdome on April 02, 2022 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski’s remarkable career came to a thrilling and sudden end Saturday night after Caleb Love made a key 3-pointer and three late free throws to lift archrival North Carolina to a thrill-a-minute 81-77 victory over the Blue Devils.

This was the 258th, most consequential and maybe, just maybe, the very best meeting between these teams, whose arenas are separated by a scant 11 miles down in Tobacco Road.

The Tar Heels (29-9), of all teams, pinned the 368th and final loss on the 75-year-old Coach K, exactly four weeks after they ruined the going-away party in his final home game at Cameron Indoor Stadium.

North Carolina will play Kansas for the title Monday.
