ATLANTA (AP) -- Chris Duhon grabbed the ball one last time, slowly dribbled up court and watched the final seconds tick off the clock.He may be hurting, but it sure doesn't show.With his sore ribs heavily taped, Duhon steered Duke into an all-too-familiar position -- one win from the Final Four -- with a 72-62 victory over Illinois in the Atlanta Regional semifinals Friday night.This was a performance that epitomized a gritty senior leader, the guy Blue Devils coach Mike Krzyzewski calls as valuable to his team as any player in the country.
