    • TRIVIA (2)

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Duke Coach Mike Krzyzewski: Jeff's really played well for three months. We wouldn't be here, have the good seed that we have, and we wouldn't have won the ACC regular season championship without Jeff Capel. Cape really had a great game. If one there's one kid who put us on his shoulders, it was Jeff.

      • Murray State Coach Mark Gottfried: They played their hearts out. They have been a team with the odds against them all season. We had only nine scholarship players and lost one of those for the season with a foot injury.

      • Duke Forward Jeff Capel: The guys realized that I was feeling good and that my shot was feeling good. They got the ball to me in good spots and I just hit the shots. Whoever has it going on a certain day, we try to keep feeding that person. Today, it just happened to be me.

        Duke Forward Jeff Capel: We were really uptight for the majority of the game. With this win under our belts, maybe we'll gain some confidence and come out on Sunday and not play as uptight.
