It’s down to one game for the national championship tonight in New Orleans. The University of Kentucky goes for its eighth basketball title while Kansas University vies for its sixth. The two teams met back on November 15th in New York when the Wildcats beat the Jayhawks 75 to 65.
The two teams got to this year’s final with wins Saturday. UK beat arch rival Louisville by eight and Kansas came back to get a victory over Ohio State by two points. The two coaches, John Calipari of UK and Bill Self at Kansas met in another title game in 2008. Self’s Kansas team got the win over Calipari’s Memphis Tigers by seven in overtime
