A2More Productions presents "Duke Basketball 2014-15: From Heartbreak to the Mountain Top (The Journey of a Champion)." On March 21, 2014, No. 14 Mercer shocked the world by upsetting No. 3 Duke, sending the Blue Devils home after the first round of the Tournament for the second time in three years. A little over a year later, Coach K tied John Wooden by taking Duke to his 12th Final Four. During the season, the Blue Devils' mantra was "Eight is Enough," and all 8 players were certainly needed in Indy. In a game where the freshmen scored 60 out of Duke's 68 points, and every point after half time, it was unheralded freshman Grayson Allen who decided to have his coming out party. Down 9 with just under 13 minutes to go, Allen scored 8 straight points, before Tyus Jones eventually took over to seal the comeback. With Duke's 5th National Championship in the books, lone senior Quinn Cook finally got his long-awaited and much-deserved banner to hang in Cameron Indoor Stadium. Coach Mike Krzyzewski got his 5th ring, breaking a tie with Adolph Rupp for second most championships ever by a coach, now trailing only John Wooden's 10. With footage from every game played during the season, enjoy this video as you relive the magic of Duke's run towards its fifth National Championship.
