Wisconsin did what many thought was impossible. The Badgers toppled the once-undefeated Kentucky Wildcats 71-64 in the best game of the 2015 NCAA Tournament to earn a trip to Monday night’s title game against Duke.
The game was to wire-to-wire throughout, but Wisconsin ultimately prevailed thanks in part to an enormous three from Sam Dekker that broke a tie game with under two minutes left.
The remarkable game was not without controversy, as the Badgers were aided by a missed shot clock violation clock from the referees that allowed a Nigel Hayes layup with 2:35 that tied the game.
It’s obviously the greatest win in Wisconsin basketball history and a crushing loss for John Capilari’s Wildcats. A National Championship would have secured the Wildcats’ place as one of the all-time great teams. But Saturday’s loss will surely alter how this team is remembered.
The Badgers will take on the Duke Blue Devils in Monday night’s title game. Duke looked fantastic in their Final Four win over Michigan State, but the Badgers will certainly be riding high with confidence after knocking out Goliath on Saturday.
