In what could only be described as shocking, the Connecticut Huskies, led by second-year head coach Kevin Ollie, have just won the National Title. That is after an indescribable NCAA Tournament run, less from on year removed from the Big East Conference and against a Kentucky Wildcats team that features more NBA players than the Philadelphia 76ers.
Really, UConn winning the Final of the NCAA Tournament is as improbable as it would be to assume that clowns like anything other than scaring the hell out of kids.
The final score, 64-60, doesn’t do the game justice either.
The Huskies led by five at the half, but John Calipari wouldn’t let his team fall silently into the night. Over and over again, the Wildcats attempted to bruise UConn underneath the basket, but unfortunately for Kentucky fans it wasn’t enough.
Led by Shabazz Napier and his 22 points (because of course), this is Connecticut’s first National Title under Ollie, but the narratives involving Bazz-ing, Ollie to the NBA rumors and “potential dynasties” are just about to begin.
Sadly, so too will uneducated stories about this Kentucky team as well as Cal’s abilities as a coach. All of which will surely be as dumb as a doorknob on cocaine.
We will have more about this game and everything that will result from it, tomorrow.
UConn National Champions! Congratulations to everyone involved.
