The Kentucky Wildcats beat their arch rivals, the Louisville Cardinals, in the first Final Four game Saturday night, and are the clear cut favorites to be cutting down the net on Monday night. Kentucky took command of the game from the start against the Cardinals, but were unable to pull away until the last few minutes when it became a dunk-fest for future number one pick, freshman Anthony Davis.
Davis will be the key on Monday night because he will be going up against Thomas Robinson and the Kansas Jayhawks who just barely squeaked by Ohio State in their Final Four game. Bill Self has worked his magic once again with this Kansas team getting to the NCCA Championship for the second time in four years. Kansas will try to be physical with Kentucky in the post, specifically Davis in the post, but I don’t believe it will be able to slow down the Wildcats. This game will be a rematch of four years ago for the coaches (when Calipari was coaching Memphis) when Kansas won after miracle shot by Mario Chalmers in the final seconds to force over time. (more…)
