ATLANTA — Malcolm Armstead is concerned about nuclear proliferation.
But the Wichita State senior guard is not referring to a threat from North Korea. Rather he frets about eliminating the “atomic bombs,” as he calls them — the turnovers that beget transition baskets, the defense-driven first-strike capability that Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski described Sunday, simply, as “boom.”

Boom or Bust for Louisville Basketball
ATLANTA — Louisville’s Kevin Ware was given the day off Friday so he would be well rested for Saturday’s Final Four semifinal against Wichita State.
He won’t be playing. He’ll be the guy sitting on the bench with a cast on his broken leg.
You won’t be able to miss him. Be assured, CBS won’t let you.
His teammates also will be well aware of his presence.
