In just the nail-biter everyone wants to see in the NCAAB finals, Duke beat out Wisconsin 68-63. The Blue Devils were lead by 4 freshmen, proving that it takes more than experience to take home a title. Wisconsin, lead by senior Frank Kaminsky, put up a hard fight but fell apart in the second half. The Badgers capitalized in the first half, as the Blue Devils tallied up the fouls, but in the 2nd half the Badgers committed 13 fouls. Tyrus Jones and Grayson Allen lead the Blue Devils in the second half and ended up with 23 and 16 points respectively. With this victory, Coach K has 5 championships under his belt, moving him ahead of Adolph Rupp for 2nd most by a Division 1 men's coach.
