Duke holds off Wisconsin, Wins fifth National Title
By Mike Jasko

Duke's Freshman played like grizzled veterans downs the stretch, particularly 6' 1” guard, Tyus Jones. Jones hit a three pointer with 1:24 left that put the Blue Devils up 66-58, all-but putting the game out of reach for Wisconsin.

The Badgers battled gallantly, fresh off of their World-Shocking victory over the previously undefeated Wildcats of Kentucky Saturday night. But it seems that beating two great sides in three nights was an order too tall for Wisconsin. Frank Kaminsky led the Badgers with 21 points and 12 rebounds. The AP player of the year answered the Tyus Jones triple with one of his own on the next possession, cutting the lead to to 66-61, but it was too little too late.

Wisconsin trailed throughout the first half before briefly taking a 31-29 lead on a Nigel Hayes 3-pointer. Duke was able to tie just before the half, and the game went into halftime tied at 31. Wisconsin came out firing in the second half, and built a 48-39 lead at the 13:17 mark in the second half.

At that point, Grayson Allen came alive for the Blue Devils, scoring eight-straight points for Duke, cutting the Wisconsin lead to four. A three-point play by Tyus Jones cut the lead to one. Moments later, a Tyus Jones jumper tied the game at 54, before a Grayson Allen basket gave Duke a 56-54 advantage.

Back-to-Back baskets by Frank Kaminsky and Sam Dekker put Wisconsin back in front, but Tyus Jones answered with a three to put Duke up 59-58 with 4:09 left. From hear Wisconsin went cold, allowing Duke to build a five-point lead which became an eight-point lead on Tyus Jones' aforementioned 3-pointer.

Tyus Jones had 23 points for Duke, while Justice Winslow had 11 points, and Jahlil Okafor added 10. Those three freshman may all be first-round selctions in June's NBA draft. Meanwhile, fellow freshman Grayson Allen, who scored 16 points and sparked Duke's comeback, will likely be back. Kaminsky and Sam Dekker could also be first round picks from Wisconsin.
