In Indianapolis last night, the men's NCAA basketball championship came to a dramatic close, with Duke beating out Wisconsin, 68 to 63. The women play tonight.

But while the college basketball season is ending, the debate over the so-called "one and done" rule — which refers to the NBA's requirement that players be at least 19, or finish a year of college, before entering the draft — is heating up again.

In a post-game press conference, Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan took a dig at the rule - and at Duke - saying, "every player that's played through the program, okay, we don't do a rent-a-player. You know what I mean? Try to take a fifth-year guy. That's okay. If other people do that, that's okay. I like trying to build from within. It's just the way I am."

Here & Now's Robin Young talks to Paul Flannery, who writes about the NBA for SB Nation, about the much-maligned one-and-done rule.
