INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Duke and Wisconsin are finally getting their turn in the spotlight.

After a season that was dominated by discussions of discussions about Kentucky's pursuit of perfection, it will be the Blue Devils and Badgers meeting for the title on Monday night.

Duke ran roughshod through Michigan State in its semifinal, moving within one win of coach Mike Krzyzewski's fifth championship. Wisconsin spoiled the Wildcats' historic run in its semifinal, and will be trying to win the school's first title since 1941.

The game should be full of intriguing matchups, from Krzyzewski matching wits with Wisconsin counterpart Bo Ryan, to two of the game's brightest stars going at it in the paint in Duke's Jahlil Okafor and the Badgers' Frank Kaminsky.

Tipoff is scheduled for 9:18 p.m. EDT.
