Depth carries Duke to another Final Four 

Duke is headed for another Final Four after showing it takes more than a cold night from one of the "Big Three" to stop the Blue Devils.

Kyle Singler missed every shot he took in the regional final. In an earlier round, Jon Scheyer was 1-for-11.

Scheyer says Duke's trio of Singler, Nolan Smith and himself "try to make up for it in other ways."

And they have. Duke has won three of four NCAA tournament games by double figures.

The Blue Devils (33-5) depend on the trio for most of their scoring. For the most part, they've come through all season. Each averages at least 17 points, and the threesome combines to average more than 53 points — nearly 69 percent of Duke's points.

Duke plays West Virginia on Saturday In Indianapolis.
