Game within NCAA title game: Kaminsky vs Okafor duel in post

Posted:
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- The last college basketball contest of the season will feature two of the best big men in the country.

Wisconsin senior Frank Kaminsky and Duke freshman Jahlil Okafor is the matchup almost everyone will be watching in the NCAA championship game Monday night.

They're a contrast in styles.

Kaminsky is the AP player of the year. He's finishing up a remarkable college career. The 7-footer is a matchup nightmare with his ability to post up, hit 3-pointers and handle the ball like a guard.

The 6-11 Okafor finished second behind Kaminsky in player of the year voting. He offers a unique blend of power and quickness around the bucket, and is a near-lock to be the first pick in the NBA draft whenever he decides to leave Duke.
