Jahlil Okafor's Composes Heartfelt Instagram Post About Winning National Championship

Jahlil Okafor did not play his best game in a Duke uniform on Monday night, but he converted two clutch baskets late and helped the Blue Devils capture the program's fifth national title in a 68-63 over Wisconsin. Okafor is the possible No. 1 pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, and is virtually locked into turning pro.

If this was Okafor's only year in Durham, he and his teammates certainly made the most of it. Okafor posted a heartfelt tribute to his teammates and their season on his Instagram Tuesday night, complete with a picture of him embracing point guard Tyus Jones, his childhood friend and tournament MOP.

Banners, and memories, do indeed last forever.
