  • Anthony Davis & Kentucky One Win Away From Glory

    Anthony Davis had to be great all night long, while the future NBA players around him had trouble dominating for long stretches. The Freshman led Kentucky to a 69-61 win over Louisville in the opening game of the Final Four, making it to the national finals for the first time since 1998, which was the last time the title went to the Big Blue nation.

  • Kentucky vs Losuiville – A Final Four Turning a State Crazy

    Old men fighting during their dialysis treatment after getting into an argument about Louisville and Kentucky. Resteraunts and bars, usually neutral, choosing sides and inviting only blue or red fans for the game so fights don’t breakout. They will elsewhere I guess.

  • Kentucky – Louisville Such a Final Four Attraction Because of Calipari – Pitino Rivalry

    Rick Pitino will make his sixth trip to the Final Four this weekend, his second with Louisville.
