FINALLY! The Final Four! While the fever pitch was nowhere near as high for this year’s Final Four in the Richmond area (No VCU), still it’s been a great tournament, and tonight’s NCAA Championship is truly a competitive match in every sense of the word. Kansas and Kentucky, two programs with a storied history and multiple national titles.
The Wildcats defeated cross-state rival Louisville to advance, while the Jayhawks outmuscled Ohio State. It’s a great duel because both teams have multiple weapons and neither has to rely on one man to win, but I like Kentucky tonight, they’re just playing on a higher level right now.
In the Women’s Final Four, there’s not a lot of questions. In fact, there’s only one. Can Notre Dame stop National Player of the Year and All-American Brittany Griner of Baylor. A Notre Dame upset would be just that as Griner and the Lady Bears have dominated women’s hoops this season, they’re 39-0 and seeking to make history Tuesday night in Denver. Enjoy the NCAA Championships 2012!
