With the national championship coming up Monday night and all the hype that comes with it — especially after watching 38-0 Kentucky fall to Wisconsin in one of the best revenge games of all time on Saturday — we here at Dorm Room Hoops thought it might be beneficial to put the championship game into a little bit of perspective. Let’s take a look back at the best national championship games in the history of the game.
Both Georgetown and Utah came in trying to prove they belong in the tournament. Georgetown is coming off a one-year hiatus whereas Utah hasn’t been in this round of the tournament since 2005. But Utah didn’t come into this game to lose. It fought through a few score changes and an early deficit to win the game, 75-64.
Forget about Christmas. This is the most wonderful time of the year.
The Selection Committee has spoken and the bracket has been released. Judging by the loading times on every single sports website, you and everyone else in America are printing and filling out your bracket so hastily that you all probably misspelled
Valparaiso. That’s okay, it happens.
While we are all shaking with anticipation and trying to think of a legit excuse to get out of work for Thursday and Friday, I hate to be the Scrooge, but someone has to be. I have a few gripes with this year’s selection committee. Nothing too serious, they didn’t put Gonzaga as a 7-seed or anything stupid — but there are a few head scratchers.
