In a surprising outcome, the Duke Blue Devils were able to beat Wisconsin to take the NCAAB Men’s championship and claim their title as the best college basketball team in the nation. It was a long and hard journey that they underwent, with a few close calls that could have cost them crucial points, but in the end beat their rival 68-63.
This would be Duke’s 5th NCAA basketball title, and a well deserved one. Wisconsin did an impressive job the first half of the game, where it looked like they would actually pull away and get a big lead. However, the experience of the Duke players proved to be more than what they could handle.
It was a hard battle between Frank Kaminsky and Jahlil Okafor, but with the team’s support with Tyus Jones, Grayson Allen, and Justise Winslow, they were able to comeback and outscore Wisconsin. Freshman superstar Tyus Jones was able to put up near perfect shooting stats, and was the person resposible in putting the nail in the coffin with his 3-pointer at 1:24 left.
The excitement will soon die down, and we all wish March Madness could come more than once a year! To get a recap of this great game just go to the NCAA official site.
