Duke fights off Arizona 82-72,
wins third NCAA championship

While Mike Krzyzewski made history, Shane Battier made life miserable for Arizona. The Duke senior capped his career with a fitting performance, says SI's Grant Wahl, doing all the little things to help the Blue Devils win their third national title, 82-72. And by steering his team through injuries and adversity, Coach K once again proved his mastery this season, says CNNSI.com's Albert Lin.
