Coach Krzyzewski gets his 4th National title in a hard faught game against Butler, who came up short in a well played National title game...
The Duke Blue Devils snap Butler's 25 game win streak. Going on to win their 4th National title in a game against a number 5 seed, I think Duke expected to blow by the Bulldogs; but they had another thing coming right at the start of the tip-off.
There were a lot of "Defense" being played by both teams and hard fools being dished out, made it hard for either team to take a big league. With six being the biggest lead, it seemed like more with the play from Singler making it rain on the court with his 19 points. But Butler's Hayward keep the Bulldogs alive all the way until the end. With a last second prayer shot nearly going in Duke escape a nail bittter in a 61-59 victory.
