Back on the set already this morning for SportsCenter and our basketball specials. Wow, I feel like I just left here …it was after 1:15 in the morning when I went back to the hotel.
What a championship game, with the two winningest programs going at it. Kentucky and Kansas have such passionate fans and there will be tremendous emotion in the Dome.
Kentucky has been the best team in America all season long. They have six guys who can score in double figures and that is hard to defend. Anthony Davis has been such a defensive force in the paint, he is really worth 15 points a game, much like Patrick Ewing was at Georgetown.
Kentucky beat Kansas by 10 when these teams met at Madison Square Garden, the Mecca, back in November. These teams are different now. Marquis Teague has really natured at the point and hr makes better basketball decisions. The ‘Cats also get great production from Darius Miller off the bench.
John Calipari and Bill Self met in the 2008 final, with the Jayhawks beating Memhis. You remember the Mario Chalmers trifecta which sent that game to OT, baby?
The bottom line in Kentucky has too many offensive threats. I see Wildcats 77, Jayhawks 70. It should be awesome, baby with a capital A!
