Duke Beats Wisconsin, Wins National Championship

Comeback! Duke dispatches Wisconsin to capture national title No. 5

Over a matter of mere minutes, the youngsters at Duke grew into salty old pros. Call them freshmen. But please, do not call them kids. Led by Tyus Jones and Jahlil Okafor, Duke's talented group of potential one-and-doners played like veterans down the stretch, outscoring Wisconsin by 14 points over the final 13 minutes Monday night to grit out a 68-63 victory for the program's fifth national title.

"It shows a lot about their confidence," said Quinn Cook, Duke's only senior starter.

Okafor, the likely first pick in the NBA draft if he decides to leave, got outplayed by Badgers senior center Frank Kaminsky most of the night but came through big when the pressure was highest.
