NCAA Championship Game Thread: Kentucky vs UConn

This is it, I guess.

Does anyone have a non-horrible bracket? Mine is trash. There's one more game, and it's starting in an hour. The last game. It's 8 Kentucky vs 7 UConn.

Who do we need to watch?

Kentucky:

  • #5.29 -- Julius Randle
  • #17.0 -- Willie Cauley-Stein
  • #19.25 -- James Young
  • #35.30 -- Aaron Harrison
  • #38.00 -- Andrew Harrison
  • #47.80 -- Alex Poythress
  • #59.67 -- Dakari Johnson
  • #101.00 -- Marcus Lee

UConn:

  • #40.1 -- Shabazz Napier
  • #101.0 -- DeAndre Daniels

Some have astutely pointed out that if UCONN wins, then the Jazz would likely be targeting Julius Randle. Why? Because that's what we seem to do -- we pick the best player on the losing team a lot: Deron Williams, Gordon Hayward, and Trey Burke all stand as examples here.

Anyway, enjoy the game. It starts as 7:10 pm MT on CBS.
