It’s been 14 years since the storied program at the University of Kentucky last won a national title, and this group of Wildcats refused to wait any longer. Monday night in New Orleans, Kentucky displayed a steady performance in defeating Kansas 67-59 to win the NCAA Men’s basketball championship.
It’s the eighth title for the Wildcats, who beat a Kansas team that has practically as much of a basketball pedigree as any college team. But it ewas the superior talent of Kentucky that separated the two teams as the Cats led the entire way, despite a sub-par game from it’s star player Anthony Davis.
Gotta give the Jayhawks a lot of credit, they battled back to the Final Four and made it to the championship this season after that devastating loss to VCU in last year’s tournament. But Kansas was obviously no match for the Wildcats who have at least three players who could go high in the NBA Draft should they decide to come out.
The Women’s National Championship goes down tonight in Denver, Colorado where the Lady Bears of Baylor, led by National Player Of The Year Brittany Griner, will try to complete the first ever 40-win season against a strong Notre Dame team. Baylor is 39-0 and have dominated the entire tournament, so an Irish victory would certainly qualify as one of the greatest upsets of all-time.
