INDIANAPOLIS — Duke and Wisconsin face off tonight to determine the men’s college basketball national champion.
For Wisconsin, it hopes to keep the momentum it started on Saturday, when the Badgers ended Kentucky’s undefeated run.
Meantime, the Blue Devils hope to win a fifth national title under Mike Krzyzewski.
CNN’s Rachel Nichols spoke to both Krzyzewski and Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan on advice they gave to their players.
“Well I think the main advice I’ve given them is how to handle the Final Four. There is so much so how do you stay yourself during this time. I do think being in the Final Four has helped me get my team emotionally ready, better,” Krzyzewski said.
“Stay in the moment, to stay who you are, be us. I had to say that Saturday, 40 times. Guys let’s just be us and let’s play the way we played to get here,” Ryan said.
Wisconsin hasn’t won a men’s basketball national championship since 1941.
