HOUSTON, TX - Duke freshman Justise Winslow celebrated his 19th birthday in a special way, coming home to Houston to play in the "Sweet 16" of the NCAA Tournament.

"It's really been the best year of my life," Winslow said. "Fortunate enough to come home and play in my hometown, but it's also my birthday, so I'm just extremely excited."

Winslow's Duke Blue Devils will play Utah in the South regional on Friday at NRG Stadium.  That game comes after UCLA plays Gonzaga.
