- Kansas had the makings of a clash
of the titans; 1 seed vs 2 seed, #1
pick vs #2 pick, Goliath vs Goliath. What fans got however was a reality
check. Kentucky is one
of the deepest teams in NCAA history, and it showed from the opening tip.
Top pick to-be, and amateur horror movie monster, Anthony
a goose egg in the first half, but Kentucky still took a commanding 16
point lead into the break. They controlled the pace, the boards, and most
Robinson's beastly performance wasn't the difference maker. When he is
removed from the equation, the Wildcats
simply out-talent Kansas at almost every other position on the floor. It got
interesting towards the end, but Kentucky's 8th title was never really in
jeopardy, and they earned it as a team.
