The shot fell, his teammates roared and Duke's offense was rolling again.
The Blue Devils' leading scorer had missed 17 of his previous 18 shots before sinking that 3 early in the second half of Duke's 70-57 win over Purdue in the South Regional semifinals Friday night.
The top-seeded Blue Devils (32-5) hit 12 of 22 shots after Scheyer's 3 and marched into the round of eight for the first time since 2004. Duke will play third-seeded Baylor (28-7) in Sunday's regional final.
The 6-foot-5 Scheyer, one of three seniors in the starting lineup, said this week that the Blue Devils are "on a mission" to add another championship to the school's storied tradition.
