After 66 games played in the March Madness tournament the 67th and most important game will be played tonight in New Orleans, LA.  The Kentucky Wildcats will Take on the Kansas Jayhawks in the NCAA National Championship game.  The two teams met in November at Madison Square Garden.  The Wildcats took that game 75-65 over the Jayhawks, it was not as close as the score seems.  The Wildcats dominated the Jayhawks during the whole second half.  The Jayhawks get a clean slate tonight and prove to the Nation they are the best.  They are coming into tonight’s game as 6 1/2 point underdogs to the Wildcats.

Tonight’s game will be won by the Kentucky Wildcats.  I know the cliche “anything can happen in one game”, but not in this one. Wildcats star Anthony Davis, a for sure No. 1 pick in the upcoming NBA Draft, has been incredible during the tournament.  Davis has shown himself to be a great leader and I see him having a bright future in the pros. In fact the Wildcats have so much talent that three of the Wildcats player are projected first round NBA picks. The Wildcats have had a pretty easy trip through March and I don’t see tonight being any different. Kansas has been good during the tournament but has had a couple of close games the last couple of weeks and just are not consistent enough to defeat the Wildcats.

The fact is that when the tournament started over 3 weeks ago it was Kentucky’s to win.  They are too strong to lose against Kansas on the biggest stage of them all. Tonight the Wildcats will put their names back in the history books as National champs.  The Season will be over they will loose 3 talented players to the NBA draft for sure, but they will recruit well and be back for many years to come.
