Now that I’ve had almost 48 hours to allow Monday night’s national championship game to digest, I’m prepared to share with you a few of the things that I’ve learned over the course of this year’s Final Four.
Finally. The madness ends tonight … and not in the way that many were expecting. No, we won’t see Kentucky getting a shot at 40-0. (You can thank — or curse — Wisconsin for that.) Instead, we get a rematch of a December game in Wisconsin and Duke. Two No. 1 seeds with loaded rosters and storied head coaches. That, in and of itself, is a story worth watching.
The game tips off at 9:18 p.m. ET on CBS.
2007 New York Giants, say hello to the 2015 Wisconsin Badgers.
After another standout effort by the duo of Frank Kaminsky and Sam Dekker, the Wisconsin Badgers were able to halt the undefeated run of the Kentucky Wildcats, 71-64, to advance to Monday’s national championship game.
The Wildcats finish the season two wins shy of an undefeated season, falling short of becoming the first team since the 1975-76 Indiana Hoosiers to go unbeaten.
Wisconsin advances to take on the Duke Blue Devils, who are coming off an 81-61 blowout win over Michigan State.
