Freshman Dawkins: Duke's X-factor?

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -- Andre Dawkins could be preparing for the prom. Instead, he's having the time of his life in another kind of big dance.

The 18-year-old finished high school early to get a jump start at Duke. He's hoping to continue being an offensive spark off the bench in the Final Four.

He hit two clutch 3-pointers in the South Regional final victory against Baylor and will be ready if his number is called when the Blue Devils (33-5) play West Virginia (31-6) on Saturday night in Indianapolis.

The trip to the Final Four has capped an emotion-filled freshman season for a teenager who might be the best pure shooter on Duke's roster.
