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.
This might be the craziest March Madness tournament to date with most of the games going down to the wire, and this game didn’t disappoint, Indiana’s starting forward, Collin Hartman, picked up two quick fouls and had to sit most of the first half, but it didn’t keep Indiana from taking a 39-36 lead at the half. In this high tempo game there were seven lead changes, but with 10:24 left in the second half Wichita St. took the lead, and held it for the rest of the game.
We finally get to see the Wichita St. versus Kansas match-up we have all been waiting for.
The question for Indiana is how long will Tom Crean be their coach?
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.
