NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP GAME RECAP

CONNECTICUT VS KENTUCKY

Shabazz Napier tried to hold back tears as he cut down the net, he didn’t. Just one year removed from the Huskies being banned from postseason play, they have done the impossible, they knocked off preseason number 1 Kentucky. Maybe 2nd year coach Kevin Ollie said it best¬†“Somebody told me we were Cinderellas, and I was like, no, we’re UConn, this is what we do. We are born for this. We’re bred to cut down nets. We’re not chasing championships. Championships are chasing us.” are maybe it was Shabazz Napier,¬†“Ladies and gentlemen, this is what happens when you banned us.” said the Senior who had 20 points, 6 rebounds (all of which were defensive), and shot 8-16 from the field. Napier was named they Final 4 MVP.

The game was never in question, UConn never trailed in the whole game, Aaron Harrison (Remember 3 game winners in the last 3 games) had a 3 to take the lead but it clanked off iron. UConn’s largest lead was 15.

I have one question? If you’re ACC commish John Swofford are you kicking yourself right now? I would, UConn wanted to go to the ACC, but he said NO. The ACC hasn’t solidified it self as the nation’s best basketball conference it would have if they had accepted UConn. Now the Huskie’s are champions of Men’s and are in the Finals for Women’s BBall (WBB Championship Game: 8:30 PM ET, ESPN) if the women’s team (39-0) beats Notre Dame (37-0) then it will be the first time since ’04 that a college has swept as men’s and women’s basketball champs, who did that? UConn.

This is the first time since 2011 the national champion missed the tournament the previous year, who did that? UConn
