2015 MEN'S NCAA BASKETBALL CHAMPIONSHIP
April 6, 2015  | By David Bianculli

CBS, 9:00 p.m. ET

 
What a year for men’s college basketball. Saturday night’s second Final Four game, in which No. 1 seed Wisconsin fought its way past another No. 1 seed, heavily favored and previously undefeated Kentucky, was a thriller all the way. The earlier game began just as thrillingly, with No. 7 seed Michigan State jumping ahead of No. 1 seed Duke, but Duke took command thereafter and kept on dominating. So tonight, coaches Bo Ryan of Wisconsin and Mike Krzyzewski (pictured) square off for the 2015 title, as do towering centers Frank Kaminsky of Wisconsin and Jahlil Okafor of Duke. And their respective, resourceful, scrappy teams. Because of what Wisconsin just accomplished to get here, I’m rooting for them – but, most of all, for another close, thrilling game to cap off a remarkable NCAA tournament year.
