Tonight is Championship Monday. Millions across the world will be tuned in tonight to witness history, as the #8 seed 29-10 Kentucky Wildcats face the #7 seed 31-8 Connecticut Huskies. This is the first time in NCAA history two low seeds have reached the NCAA Championship game. Both teams felt going into the NCAA tournament the committee did them a disservice by giving them low seeds. Each team could have easily been 6 seeds going into the tournament. Kentucky and Connecticut had difficult roads to get here, thanks to the poor seeding of the NCAA committee . Kentucky came out of the toughest bracket in NCAA history. Kentucky faced teams such as Kansas St, undefeated Wichita St, defending champ Louisville, 2013 Runner-up Michigan, and #2 seed Wisconsin for the right to play for the title tonight. Connecticut road was difficult as well, they almost loss their first round game against a tough St. Joseph team, only to find their way into knocking off two favorites to win it all this year in Michigan St, and Florida. As Drake would say about these roads taken by the two teams, “They don’t have no award for that” Trophies”. This match-up will be an interesting one to say the least. Kentucky was able to beat a team in Louisville twice, that destroyed UCONN all three times during the regular season. Connecticut did the same by beating a team in Florida twice that Kentucky couldn’t beat with 3 chances at it. Who will pull out the victory tonight? What are the keys to the game? Vegas has the Cats as 2.5 point favorites, meaning this game is a toss-up that could go either way. Tip for the Championship game in At&t stadium will be at 9:10pm on CBS. Trophies!
