Duke v. Wisconsin, the Final 4:25 -- Wisconsin goes up by 2.

Remember now, in the post-game, Bo Ryan does NOT complain about any out of bounds calls.  He complains that his team couldn't win because they were being physically beaten up by Duke.  Let's examine that position.

After Wisconsin took a 2 point lead, for the final 4:25, there were exactly ZERO foul calls that Wisconsin got and didn't deserve or deserved and didn't get.  Sorry Bo Ryan:

4:25Sam Dekker made Layup. Assisted by Josh Gasser.58-56 
4:09 58-59Tyus Jones made Three Point Jumper.
4:06Duke Timeout
3:38Frank Kaminsky missed Jumper.  (Bo is watching the play right in front of him, he makes no protest about any alleged foul - Frank just blows an 8 footer)58-59 
3:38 58-59Justise Winslow Defensive Rebound.
3:22 Official TV Timeout
3:14 58-61Jahlil Okafor made Layup.

3:14 58-61Jahlil Okafor missed Free Throw.
3:14Sam Dekker Defensive Rebound.58-61

2:50Frank Kaminsky Offensive Rebound.58-61 
2:41Frank Kaminsky missed Jumper (the ball kicks around and Kaminsky jacks an awful one hander at the shot clock buzzer)58-61 
2:41 (actually a team rebound on a 24 second violation)58-61Justise Winslow Defensive Rebound.
2:13 (one of 12 missed layups for Duke on the game)58-61Justise Winslow missed Layup.

1:53 Really a team rebound58-63Justise Winslow Defensive Rebound.
1:24 58-66Tyus Jones made Three Point Jumper.
1:09Frank Kaminsky made Three Point Jumper. Assisted by Bronson Koenig.61-66 
1:05Wisconsin Timeout
1:03Tyus makes a horrible decision, he is arguably fouled, but in a late game situation in a national championship game, you won't get such a minor foul call....as you can see by the fact that in all of the plays listed above, no one has been called for a foul where a tackle was not involved.61-66Tyus Jones missed Layup.
1:03Frank Kaminsky Defensive Rebound.61-66 
0:50Nigel Hayes made Dunk. Assisted by Bronson Koenig.63-66 
0:43Duke Timeout
0:35Foul on Nigel Hayes.  (There are actually 39 seconds to go).63-66 
0:35 (Hayes inexplicably waits 11 seconds and then attacks Tyus with the body at the halfcourt line -- Jones falls over backwards into the back court and not one person watching has any doubts that a foul has occurred.  The announcers believe that Wisconsin has fouled intentionally to stop the clock.)  Badgers send a 90% shooter to the line and he, as you might expect, makes both.63-67Tyus Jones made Free Throw.
0:35 63-68Tyus Jones made Free Throw.
0:21 (Winslow knows Duke has a foul to give, so he just wraps up Koenig on the dribble so Koenig cannot go by him for a layup).63-68Foul on Justise Winslow.
0:18Bronson Koenig missed Jumper.63-68 
0:18 (Wisconsin holds the ball out front and dribbles around aimlessly for 20 seconds,  They eventually end up with a closely guarded 3 by a small guard over Amile Jefferson, who might get a piece of the ball.  No dispute by anyone on the play.  No one claims a foul has occurred).63-68Justise Winslow Defensive Rebound.
0:15Foul on Josh Gasser.  (Tackles Winslow to stop the clock).63-68 
0:15 63-68Justise Winslow missed Free Throw.
0:15 63-68Duke Deadball Team Rebound.
0:15 63-68Justise Winslow missed Free Throw.
0:15Frank Kaminsky Defensive Rebound.

(Down 5, the Badgers' only chance to win is to score very quickly, then foul or get a steal, and then hit a miracle 3 to tie.  Instead, they go pretty slowly and give it to a guy who is 0-5 from 3 to that point, with 3 airballs).
0:09Sam Dekker missed Three Point Jumper.63-68 
0:09Josh Gasser Offensive Rebound.63-68 
0:04Nigel Hayes missed Three Point Jumper.63-68 
0:04 There are absolutely no fouls involved in any of this.  Wisconsin puts on a shooting gallery display like the town drunk at a bad small town carnival and just runs out the time trying to score over token defense by guys just  trying not to foul).63-68Amile Jefferson Defensive Rebound.
0:00End of Game

 Tyus Jones 8
Okafor 4
Kaminsky 3
Hayes 2.

Wisconsin lost.  Someone has to win and someone has to lose.  Whining about non-existent fouling issues does not make you a sympathetic loser.
