March Madness is over and we now have a national champion.   On April 6 2015, in Indianapolis, at Lucas Oil Stadium. The Wisconsin Badgers and Duke Blue Devils played for all the marbles but, only one champion could be crowned that night. There was a lot of scoring back and forth in the first half, but this wouldn’t last long as the Blue Devils would hold off the Badgers late in the second half to win 68-63.

Although it was a hard fought game, the were two players who stood out, freshmen guards Tyus Jones and Grayson Allen who led the Blue Devils with 23 and 16 points, respectively. Also,national freshman of the year Dukes (Center) Jahlil Okafor finished the game with 10 points despite spending most of the second half on the bench in foul trouble. But he (Okafor) still played a huge part to lead his team to victory.

Duke has now collected its fifth national title, which is another achievement in Coach K’s career. After the game, Coach K was excited about the win and talked about his teams accomplishments. “My team had great grit and determination. Our defense down the stretch was magnificent.,” said Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski. “I don’t know how you can be any better than we were down the stretch.”
