Vitto Brown #30 of the Wisconsin Badgers celebrates with teammates after defeating the Kentucky Wildcats during the NCAA Men's Final Four Semifinal.

As Wisconsin takes on Duke Monday night for the NCAA men's college basketball title, here are five reasons to be even more excited for the big game.

74 Years

Wisconsin hasn't won a national title since 1941. Basketball was a much different game back then...

Frank The Tank

Frank Kaminsky was named Associated Press' player of the year - the first Badger to be so honored.

Homegrown Team

From La Crosse to Port Washington, seven players on the roster are from Wisconsin. Sheboygan native Sam Dekker has been especially clutch for the Badgers. Duke, on the other hand, has one player from North Carolina.

Uncommon Chemistry

The players seem to have a lot of fun together..
