Kentucky & Baylor Crowned
The NCAA men’s and women’s March Madness basketball tournaments both actually ended in April leaving the dust clearing visions of Kentucky University men’s champions and Baylor University women’s champions.
In the men’s tournament player of the year Kentucky’s Anthony Davis helped beat Kansas 67-59 with Kentucky never seeming to be out of control. Kentucky coach John Calipari has been blessed with talent from around the country and thrived this season with the bounty of the best. Rumors are abound of maybe an entire freshmen class of one and done.”We were the best team,” Calipari said. “I wanted this to be one for the ages.”
For the women Baylor made history with the first NCAA basketball undefeated season men or women’s with a 40-0 record. 6ft 8 Brittney Griner and Baylor established perfection, Griner had 26 points, 13 rebounds and five blocks to lead Baylor to a 80-61 win over Notre Dame.
Griner, The Associated Press player of the year and named most outstanding player of the tournament comes to work every day,” Baylor coach Kim Mulkey said. “A lot of great players think they’re all that and they half go through drills and they come to practice and they dog it. That child comes to work and brings her work pail every day.”The victory also gave President Barack Obama some bragging rights. He correctly picked Baylor to beat Dame in the title game.
Congratulations Kentucky Wildcats & Baylor Lady Bears you are the NCAA Division 1 basketball champions.
