Duke beats Butler in a thriller

      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.
