There won't be a 39-0 team this year. Wisconsin has slain the monster.
Kentucky, after taking a 4 point lead late, went into a stall which led to three consecutive 35 second violations. And then Wisconsin's poise, senior leadership and free throw shooting was all she wrote. What a game and what an upset to some, but not to me.
I told you Kentucky could be beat by a smart, disciplined team, and it happened. Notre Dame exposed this Kentucky team. And how. What a scene right now in the Stadium.
Frank Kaminsky showed why he is the National Player of the Year, and Decker proved a worthy colleague. This Wisconsin team is all you can want in a college basketball team. And a Duke-Wisconsin final has the two best teams playing. Two number 1's for the first time in 7 years.
Duke has already beaten Wisconsin earlier this year. Both of these teams are playing great basketball. And I wont have to listen to the legion of Wildcat fans who as I write are getting in their cars to drive back to Kentucky.
Four Badgers in double figures. Clutch free throw shooting. and a very questionable strategy by the Coach of the Year means there will once again not be an undefeated team in College basketball. Its fitting that in Indianapolis, The last undefeated team ( Indiana) sees its record survive. What a game.
