2014 National Championship Preview

04/07/2014

           Well we are finally here.  We are at the conclusion of March Madness.  This tournament has never disappointed from start to finish.  I am sad to see it go, but we still get to celebrate the greatest tournament in all of sports for one more night.  Who would have thought at the beginning of this tournament we would see a #7 seed playing a #8 seed for the national championship.  I know that I sure didn’t.  However, that is what makes this tournament so great.  Just when you think you know it all, the unexpected happens.  

#7 Connecticut VS #8 Kentucky

           I think that this is going to be a fantastic game to watch tonight.  I think that it’s so fitting that we will finish this tournament with a game that few people thought that this could happen.  We have a game between two evenly matched teams.  Both teams have gotten hot at the right time.  If the game comes down to three point shooting and free throws, Connecticut has the advantage because they shoot 39% from behind the arch and 77% from the free throw line.  However, I can never count Kentucky out because of all the comebacks that they have made in the tournament this year.  After their win saturday, they are now 4-0 in games that they have trailed at halftime in the tournament this year.  I think that physically, Kentucky has an advantage because of all their size and strength.  Another area that Kentucky has an advantage is talent wise.  However, this cannot be the only thing you rely one because talent will only get you so far.  

Prediction:

          I think that this is going to be a fantastic game tonight.  These are two teams that are evenly matched.  This is going to be a difficult game to call, but I am going to try and do it.  I think that Kentucky will win this game off of yet another game-winning three pointer from Aaron Harrison by the score of 82-79.  Regardless of what the outcome is tonight, this tournament has turned out to be better than anyone could have imagined and this game will be just the tip of the iceberg.
