NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP GAME at ARLINGTON, TX:

(7) Connecticut vs. (8) Kentucky:

Neither of these teams were in the field last year, now they are playing for the title.  This is the lowest combined seeds to play for the title since seeding began in 1979.  This will be an entertaining game.  Both of these teams are playing very well right now.  Monday should not be an exception.  Kentucky won all five of their games by single digits, including the last three on last minute shots by Aaron Harrison.  Napier will get his shots against Kentucky, but their size and athleticism will cause some problems for the Huskies.  The guards of UConn could cause some problems for Kentucky.  This version of the “Fab Five” seems better put together than the Michigan team of 22 years ago.  Can Kentucky succeed where the Wolverines failed?  All I can say is: I refuse to bet against Aaron Harrison.  Period!  (Pick: Kentucky)
