Tonight is the National Championship game, the game fans have been waiting for.
Both teams have had excellent seasons and have played spectacular basketball this tournament. Both, Wisconsin & Duke, deserve to be in this championship game. On Saturday, Wisconsin became the first team all season to beat Kentucky, and Duke cruised to a 20 point victory over Michigan State.
Even though Wisconsin defeated Kentucky, I still believe Duke has played the best basketball thus far. Duke has played incredible defense only allowing one opponent to reach over 60 points, a 81 to 61 victory over Michigan State in the final four. Duke has looked stronger as the tournament has gone on, beating Gonzaga in the elite eight (66-52) and then Michigan State in the final four (81-61).
Duke went to Wisconsin back in December, and beat them (80-70) at their home court which most people don’t do too often. In fact it was Wisconsin’s only home loss all season long. Even though Wisconsin just became the first team to beat Kentucky, I just don’t think anyone right now can beat Duke. Their offense and defense has just been too good in this tournament and I think they will get the job done and give Coach K another championship.
