Arlington, TX – Kevin Ollie said he knew his second team at Connecticut was destined for great things. A year after they were banned from the postseason, and a month after they lost to a conference rival by 33 points, Shabazz Napier and the rest of the Huskies proved their coach right.

At the beginning of this year’s NCAA tournament, who would’ve thought it would come down to these two teams? No. 7 seed UConn will face No. 8 Kentucky. Kentucky is a rare case because they were the preseason No. 1 team. The Wildcats’ freshmen have grown up quickly and they have been able to pull out close games all tournament long, thanks to Aaron Harrison’s late 3-pointers in wins over Michigan and Wisconsin. UConn has had a magical ride into the final game. Led by Shabazz Napier, the Huskies were able to get by Villanova and Michigan State before stunning No. 1 Florida in the Final Four. There will be a lot of talent on the court on Monday night, it just might not be the talent most expected coming into the tournament.

Well, here it is. After this weekend, we will have a new NCAA tournament champion. And it will be one of these four teams. We’ve seen some really good, sometimes even surprising outcomes so far in the tournament, thankfully. With any luck, the next few games will be just as hard-fought and exciting. We have some excellent match-ups for today’s game, and some potential excellent match-ups for Monday’s championship game. All that’s left to do now is sit back and watch. And maybe do a little bit of speculating.
