ANAHEIM (AP) — Derrick Williams scored a career-high 32 points and his Arizona teammates showed they’re not just a one-man team, upsetting defending national champion Duke 93-77 Thursday night to reach the final eight for the first time since 2005.

The top-seeded Blue Devils (32-5) were sent packing from a regional semifinal for the second time in three years. Coach Mike Krzyzewski, with 900 wins, will have to wait until next season to
resume his pursuit of Bob Knight’s record as the winningest men’s coach in Division I history.

Williams scored 25 of his points in the first half before his teammates came up big in the final 20 minutes.

Lamont Jones added 16 points and Solomon Hill 13.
