Boy I am glad my heart won out over my brain. Down eight midway thru the second half, the Devils showed grit and no freshman jitters as they pulled away down the stretch to capture Coach's K 5th Championship. Is there any doubt that he is the greatest coach since Wooden. There really cant be.
This is a team that starts 3 freshmen and has only 8 players. They beat a veteran Wisconsin team that looked like they would win the first basketball National Championship since 1941. It was not to be. Time for me to join my fellow Dukies and celebrate. It will be a long nite with an early morning flight back ahead of me.
