Duke wins National Championship over Butler

Duke's "Big Three" weren't going to be denied the championship they so desperately craved. As usual, they did most of the work by themselves - then got some timely help from their big man.
The Blue Devils held on to beat Butler 61-59 Monday night for
their first national title since 2001, and once again, their three
stars did most of the heavy lifting.
Kyle Singler scored 19 points, Jon Scheyer added 15 and Nolan
Smith 13. But title No. 4 wasn't secure until 7-foot-1 center Brian
Zoubek got a hand in Gordon Hayward's face on a missed shot with 7
seconds left, hit a free throw with 3.6 seconds to go and held his
breath as Hayward's half-court heave at the buzzer clipped off the
glass and the rim.
