The Wisconsin Badgers have done the impossible.
The Badgers — led by AP player of the year Frank Kaminsky — shocked the college basketball world by upsetting the Kentucky Wildcats, 71-64, in Saturday’s Final Four match-up. The top-seeded Wildcats had entered the game with a perfect 38-0 record.
Kaminsky finished the game with 20 points and 11 rebounds for his 12th double-double of the season. Saturday was also the 7-footer’s birthday, and he told ESPN the victory was the “best birthday present [he’d] ever had.”
The Badgers are set to take on Coach Mike Krzyzewski’s Duke Blue Devils on Monday. The National Championship Final will tip at 9:18 p.m. EST and will be broadcast on CBS.
This will be Wisconsin’s first national championship appearance since 1941.
