Duke NCAA Championship

Duke’s four freshmen players proved that even the pressure of millions of viewers watching on CBS and an early deficit couldn’t deter them as the Blue Devils won the NCAA men’s basketball championship in a thrilling title game against Wisconsin.

Beating the Badgers 68-63 to clinch a fifth title on Monday in Indianapolis, the stars of the night were guards Tyus Jones and Grayson Allen, who led the team with 23 and 16 points, respectively. “They showed such grit tonight,” said Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski after the game.

As Duke fans celebrated, Hollywood stars reacted to the nail-biting game that saw 13 lead changes in the first 20 minutes.

“Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman” actor Dean Cain — who played baseball against Chad and Rob Lowe growing up — tweeted congratulations to Duke.


The Los Angeles Lakers are having a tough season, but that didn’t stop Kobe Bryant from recognizing Coach K’s huge achievement.

But not everyone was happy, as Wisconsin fans — including actress Olivia Munn and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, lamented the loss.
