NCAA Men’s Championship final Prediction

 When you are talking march madness you are talking these two teams squaring off tonight. Both Kentucky and Uconn have been nothing short of pulse throbbing and excitement, beating high quality teams and late game heroics including jaw dropping three pointers with seconds to go. Uconn is being led by second year coach and former pro baller Kevin Ollie. His point guard Shabazz Napier is an All-American whose game has been compared to that of clutch man Kemba Walker. His ability to break down a defense and shoot outside and drive when he wants is a problem to any defense. Shooting guard Ryan Boatright is a very good send option along with DeAndre Daniels to complete the big 3 of this Uconn offense. What scares me most about this team is they gel so well together as a whole and can really pester offenses like Florida and annoy them big time. On the other side of the ring is a Kentucky team which has come out of nowhere to reach this final. It is not that they have a bad team, it is just that they have 5 freshman starting for most of the year up until Cauley-Stein injured his ankle. I believe John Calipari has single handedly made this team capable of reaching the final by believing and pushing his freshman to have confidence and supreme control of  their game. I expect Julius Randle to get some major rebounding along with Dakari Johnson and Alex Poythress, and Lee. Harrison twins and James Young need to shoot well and exploit the Uconn defense. I personally like Kentucky to win this and expect a nail biter down to the grit in this one. Kentucky by about five or six when it is time to cut the nets down.
