Duke Wins Thriller Over Butler to Take National Title
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Duke won its fourth national championship Monday night, forcing Butler's Gordon Hayward to miss with 4 seconds left to hold off the Bulldogs 61-59 and end the tiny school's run at the title one game short of the perfect ending.

Kyle Singler had 19 for the Blue Devils and Brian Zoubek rebounded Hayward's miss and hit one free throw with 3.6 seconds left to give Duke a two-point lead.

Hayward rebounded Zoubek's intentional miss and threw up a desperation heave at the buzzer, that hit glass, bounced off the rim and out.

The win gave Mike Krzyzewski his first national title since 2001 and fourth overall, tying him with Adolph Rupp for second on the all-time list.
