Worst. Game. Ever. And other News and Notes.

The national championship game between Butler and UConn could have possibly the worst college basketball game ever played in the history of the world. It was boring, low scoring and just plain sloppy. I'm not trying to take anything away from Uconn's title, but my 7th grade St. Polycarp City Championship team could have beaten Butler last night. I'm going to go ahead and say that I hope Butler never makes it to another title game again. They suck and I am tired of hearing about them. That was probably a bit of an overreaction due to the fact that Kentucky could have beat either one of those teams last night. And as a matter of fact Louisville did beat both of those teams. And that shows how crummy of a year it was for the NCAA National Championship.

  • Kentucky finished #3 in the polls behind UConn and Butler. The Cardinals finished 22nd. They probably should have been more like #3o.

  • Dick Vitale picked his top 6 for next season and the Cats came in at #2. Louisville checks in at #6 behind the power of Tony Woods' spine cracking ability.

  • Trey Thompkins and Travis Leslie are both turning pro. The Georgia superstars both announced as much today. Thompkins signed with an agent and Leslie did not. This crushes the chance of Georgia making any noise next year.

  • The Big East finally won a basketball championship. I still say they had no business getting 11 teams in and they were overrated. Marquette, Cincinnati and Georgetown had no business being in that tournament.

That's all for now. I'm in a horrible mood if you can't tell. I promise to be happier tomorrow. Maybe.

  1. A Big East team has ended UK's post season play 5 of the last 6 season. This "Big East is overrated" campaign isn't working out to well for UK.
