Duke – Wisconsin Showdown in Indy Tonight
Saturday's Final Four was as exciting as it gets, with Duke overpowering Michigan State, 81-61. Little did we know that the best was yet to come, as Wisconsin upset Kentucky, 71-64, spoiling their perfect season, and knocking them out of the competition.
As many others, I had predicted Duke and Kentucky in the Championship game, but the Wisconsin Badgers had something to say to those of us who counted them out. I'll be the first to say, boy was I wrong!
The mood is gloomy in those old Kentucky homes, but Wisconsin fans are saying 'cheese' in the hope of bring a national title to the badger state.
The Blue Devils took care of business, easily winning over Michigan State, and Coach K has his team playing great and looking to give the Blue Devils their 5th national title. This would tie them with UNC for the most NCAA championships!
Duke vs Wisconsin: Both of these teams have dominate big men and a great back court. Duke's Jahlil Okafor has been a monster in the paint, and Justise Winslow has provided scoring and boards.
All of this while Wisconsin's Frank Kaminsky is doing it on both sides with scoring and great defensive plays, proving a team with heart is a very dangerous team.
My prediction - I want to see Wisconsin win because they are the underdogs in this game. However, Duke has already beaten them once this season and that team has only gotten much better since then. Blue Devils will win by 8 points.
The madness comes to an end with the finale tonight in Indianapolis.
