Duke Beats Wisconsin, 68-63, To Win NCAA Men's Basketball Title

Duke players celebrate after winning the NCAA men's basketball championship Monday night against Wisconsin in Indianapolis.

In a back-and-forth game, the Duke Blue Devils eked out a 68-63 win, and an NCAA men's basketball championship, against the Wisconsin Badgers on Monday night in Indianapolis.

Duke normally has been led by freshmen and projected top-10 NBA draft picks Jahlil Okafor and Justise Winslow. Monday night, the top scorers were two other freshman: starting guard Tyus Jones, who scored 23 points — including 19 in the second half — and bench guard Grayson Allen, who scored 16. Jones was named the player of the game.

Consensus player of the year Frank Kaminsky led the Badgers with 21 points and 12 rebounds. Sam Dekker, one of the teams dominant players in its run to the title game, was held to 12 points on 6-15 shooting, including 0-6 from behind the three-point line.

It's the fifth national title for Duke, which last won in 2010. It's also the fifth title for coach Mike Krzyzewski, who has led the team for the past 35 years.
