Are you a Blue Devil? If so, yesterday may have been one of the best days of your life. Your nerves may have been a tad on edge throughout the game, however. Duke was down and many thought out, during much of Monday’s game with Wisconsin.
The battle was dead even at halftime, but Wisconsin aimed to complete a final knockout for Duke with a 48-39 lead after they returned from the break. Just as many Duke fans began to shuffle for the remote, the Blue Devils gained a resiliency like no other. They snatched the lead back from Wisconsin at 4:08 after Tyus Jones sank a three pointer. There were some questionable calls from the game officials that circulated through social media. However, this did not deter either team from battling till the end for their championship right.
Duke’s defense continued to hammer Wisconsin in the second half. They held the Badgers to 41 percent shot success. This would eventually lead to the Badgers falling to the Blue Devils, 68-63 in a stunning victory for Duke.
