Visitors to Indy are now clearing out of town after the NCAA Men’s Final Four festivities over a long Easter weekend and championship game Monday night. Congrats to the Duke “Blue Devils” who beat the Wisconsin “Badgers” 68 to 63 at Lucas Oil Stadium downtown. Duke rallied from a nine-point second-half deficit to that championship win, which is the schools’ fifth tourney title. Tyus Jones scored 19 of his game-high 23 points in the second half while Grayson Allen chipped in 16 points off the bench for the Blue Devils. Wisconsin’s “big” Frank Kaminsky finished with 21 points and 12 rebounds.  The Badgers end their season 36-and-4.  Legendary Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski continued to cement his legacy of being one of the greatest coaches in college basketball history with the win. He helped to cut down that net for his team in Indy where he’s led the Blue Devils to all five of those championships. “Coach K,” as he is also known, became the first men’s basketball coach to reach 1,000 career wins in Division One history.


NCAA basketball attention now turns to Tampa, Florida where the NCAA Women’s Championship game is going down at 8:30 p.m. (Eastern) tonight between Notre Dame and UConn. The Fighting Irish are making their fourth appearance in the championship game in five years looking for their first title since 2001. Notre Dame squeeked past South Carolina to advance and the Huskies of UConn cruised past Maryland to get to tonight’s game.  Root on the ladies on ESPN.
