Coach Rene Pulley, of the very elite Nike high school league, EYBL traveled around the country with Tyus Jones and was beaming with pride Tuesday.
Minnesota-native Tyus Jones was named Most Outstanding Player in Duke’s NCAA Championship win Monday night. There were 16 lead changes in the title game, but in the end, Duke came back to beat the Wisconsin Badgers 68-63.
Last night, the Huskies cut down the nets in Dallas after beating Kentucky 60-54 to win the school’s fourth national championship. Consider that Kentucky needed four straight late escapes to reach the final and you get a sense for what kind of Tournament this was.
Rick Pitino capped the greatest week of his life with the prize he wanted most of all.
Confidence or tempting fate? That’s the question one has to ponder when considering that Kansas University’s Athletics Department is selling T-shirts boasting a NCAA championship win already, despite the fact that they don’t face off against Kentucky until Monday evening.
There were plenty of cheers for the Gophers women’s hockey team, as they beat the defending champion Wisconsin Badgers Sunday to come out on top of the Women’s Frozen Four.
