Duke won the national title Monday night, thanks to the strong play of a number of freshmen, including Tyus Jones, Jahlil Okafor, Justise Winslow and Grayson Allen. While most of the country is impressed with the quick development of the team’s younger players, United States Senator Claire McCaskill, of Missouri, is not a fan. After watching the contest, she decided to randomly take a shot at Duke because it has players who might leave for the NBA after one year of play. Seriously.

"Congrats to Duke, but I was rooting for team who had stars that are actually going to college & not just doing semester tryout for NBA," tweeted McCaskill.

Pretty strange. I guess we know who McCaskill was rooting for every time Kentucky took the floor this year – the other team.
