"We never saw on our monitor what everybody saw at home, if you can believe that." --NCAA Head of Officials John Adams on the controversial replay, where after Badgers sophomore guard Bronson Koenig missed his layup and fought Duke sophomore forward Justise Winslow for the inbounds.

Video: Butch Ryan wanted Duke, now gets his wish
In a SportsCenter interview with Andy Katz on Sunday, Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan reminisces about a story from 1998, when the Ryan coached UW-Platteville squad went 30-0 and won the Division III national championship. Ryan recalls that after the game, his late father, Butch, who passed away in August 2013, held up a sign that read, "Bring on Duke," while the team was taking its championship picture. Coincidence? Maybe. The Badgers face the Blue Devils for the 2015 national championship on Monday night.

Kentucky's Andrew Harrison appeared to utter an unkind remark about Wisconsin's Frank Kaminsky when a reporter asked Karl-Anthony Towns about Kaminsky's 20-point, 11-rebound performance. It seems like a heat-of-the-moment thing, sure, but Harrison's gotta know better.
