Hoops Dreams

imagesCollege basketball comes to an end tonight in a most unlikely fashion. Seventh-seeded Connecticut and eighth-seeded Kentucky will play. Neither was around in last year’s tournament and neither looked like national title contenders at times this season. Their combined seeding is the lowest since the NCAA tournament began seeding teams in the bracket in 1979 and Connecticut is the first seven seed in the past 36 years to make the title game and Kentucky is the first team to start 5 freshmen since the Fab 5 at Michigan in the early 90′s. Tonight’s pregame speech for the Wildcats will be from Chris Webber who will remind them to know how many timeouts they have.
