Kentucky Wildcats Basketball program at 38-2 are the 2012 College National Champions after defeating Kansas 67 to 59 in New Orleans last night.
While the Jayhawks big man totally shut down and exposed Anthony Davis offensively, the UK MVP shined on defense in blocking shots, steals, rebounds and overall hustle.
The Kentucky guards lit it up from outside. Offense gets the glory. Defense wins the game.
Kentucky was in control most of the way but Kansas mounted a late rally. The lead would have been cut to 3 but a fatal mistake bunny hop, double dribble negated a 3 pointer that swished through nothing but net.
It may be One & Done for UK though as all 5 of Kentucky’s starters, 2 freshmen and 3 sophomores, could be selected in the early rounds of the NBA draft in June.
Time will tell. Congratulations Kentucky. Go Blue.
