Matchups to Watch

All of them.  Duke and Wisconsin have asserted dominance throughout their respective sides of the bracket.  Duke has allowed only 55 points per game during the tournament, while Wisconsin has scored on average 78 points per game this tournament.  The statement “Defense wins championships” will either be confirmed or busted tonight.

Records on the Line

Mike Krzyzewski looks to move into 2nd place for most NCAA titles by a coach (5) following only the late great John Wooden (10).

Duke also is looking to move into a 3 way tie (Indiana, North Carolina) for the third most NCAA titles (5) for a school.

A Wisconsin win would make them only the third team (Kansas 2008, Arizona 1997) to ever beat at least two #1 seeds to win a national championship.

Beating Duke would also give Wisconsin the losest ever seed total for a champion at 32 (North Carolina 1993 – 33)

Fun to Watch

Much to the dismay of the Kentucky faithful, this should be a great game to watch.  So grab a six pack, get your popcorn ready and enjoy one last game of college basketball for the season.
