Charles Barkley said the key to the national championship was whether Jahlil Okafor or Frank Kaminsky was in foul trouble. Okafor endured foul trouble, yet Duke won. Duke rallied for the win only after Kaminsky dominated Okafor so bad that Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski had to sit Okafor almost the entire last 12 minutes.

With 14:26 to go, Notre Dame’s Pat Connaughton drove to the hoop for a dunk that gave them a 46-42 lead, and Ashley Judd covered her head. The rest of the game was a battle, and with 2:36 to go Connaughton found Jerian Grant 24 feet from the basket and Grant buried the long three-pointer to give Notre Dame a 66-64 lead.
