The Participants: Kansas, Kentucky, Louisville, and Ohio State
The Biggest Question: After years of bringing in top prospects – and emerging the first king of the one-and-done era, could Kentucky coach John Calipari finally bring the Wildcats back to the college hoops mountaintop?
The Semi-Finals: Kentucky 69-61 over Louisville; Kansas 64-62 over Ohio State
The Final: Kentucky 67-59 over Kansas
The Most Outstanding Player: Anthony Davis. Kentucky’s freshman sensation stuffed the stat sheet over Kentucky’s two games in New Orleans with 24 points, 30 rebounds, 7 assists, and 11 blocks in bringing Big Blue Nation its first national title in 14 years.
The Enduring Image: Take your pick of blocked or altered shots by Anthony Davis. The lithe Chicago-bred big man dominated the game from the paint and never allowed Kansas to get on track as he disrupted any shot in his vicinity. Many regard it as the most dominating defensive performance in title-game history.
A Final Four Fun Fact: Davis won Most Outstanding Player honors despite only making one of his 10 shots in the championship game. That should tell you just how dominant The Brow was on the defensive end.
