Duke's win over Wisconsin in the 2015 NCAA championship game was the culmination of a basketball season no Blue Devils fan will ever forget. Led by a talented freshman class featuring All-American center Jahlil Okafor, guard Tyus Jones, and forward Justise Winslow, Coach Mike Krzyzewski's squad collected seven wins over ranked teams in the regular season to earn a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. Duke then stormed past Robert Morris, San Diego State, Utah, and Gonzaga to reach the Final Four for the 12th time in Krzyzewski's career. In Indianapolis, Duke dominated Michigan State in the semifinal to reach the title game. Against Wisconsin in the final, Okafor, Jones, and fellow freshman Grayson Allen led a stunning comeback as the Blue Devils overcame a nine-point deficit early in the second half to knock off the Badgers, 68–63.
Packed with expert analysis and stunning action photography, High Five: Duke's Unforgettable 2015 Championship Season takes fans through Duke's amazing journey, from their early season wins over Michigan State and Wisconsin to Coach K's historic 1,000th career win to the final seconds in Indianapolis. This commemorative edition also features in-depth profiles of Krzyzewski, senior leader Quinn Cook, Okafor, Winslow, and Jones.
