Duke heads back to Indianapolis _ site of 2 national championships _ for Midwest Regional

Duke always seems to feel right at home in the heart of the Hoosier state.

The Blue Devils have won six of seven NCAA tournament games played in Indianapolis and have won two national titles there. That includes their most recent championship in 2010 when the current seniors were freshmen.

A pair of victories there this weekend at the Midwest Regional would send them back to their first Final Four since then.

Indiana native Mason Plumlee says he hasn't stepped foot inside Lucas Oil Stadium since the Blue Devils cut down the nets following their title-winning victory over Butler three years ago.

Plumlee says those memories won't help the second-seeded Blue Devils (29-5) against third-seeded Michigan State (27-8) on Friday night.
