INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Sam Dekker gave Wisconsin a four-point lead with 1:06 left, then Bronson Koenig put their semifinal away at the free throw line as the Badgers ended Kentucky’s unbeaten season.
Final score: 71-64.
Now, the Badgers will play Duke for the national championship Monday night.
Meanwhile, the Wildcats finished 38-1. Another season will end without an undefeated national champion in Division I. Indiana is still the last to accomplish the feat in 1975.
The Badgers have not won a national title since 1941.
As the Badgers closed it out Saturday night, their student section chanted, “38-1!”
