Duke Rallies to Top Wisconsin for NCAA Championship: Hollywood Reacts
Gabrielle Union, Nick Lachey and Marvel star Clark Gregg were among those chiming in about the thrilling conclusion to March Madness.
Duke came from behind to beat Wisconsin and claim the NCAA men's basketball title on Monday night.
The 68-63 victory marked Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski's fifth national championship and featured strong performances from freshmen Tyus Jones and Jahlil Okafor. Okafor is widely considered a likely candidate to be the first pick in the NBA draft.
Here is what some Hollywood, sports and comedy figures were tweeting about the heated matchup.
