No, Anthony Davis and this squad that consists of mostly freshmen led the University of Kentucky to their first championship since 1998. It’s a feeling that nothing could compare to.
Just moments ago, I watched UK cap off a victory and a season like no other—one that I had the very honor of being in this city for.
People can say what they want. “UK fans are soooooo annoying!”, “UK fans just think they’re sooooo cool!!!” Alas, on this night, we can celebrate an emphatic, championship victory over the Kansas Jayhawks.
UK left no doubt in the minds of everyone in this country as to who the best team was in 2011-12. In terms of offense AND defense, no team can say they were better—I do not care what statistics may or may not say, there was no one that could do better. Anthony Davis was a block machine in addition to an offensive monster. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist was nothing less than a pest to opposing teammates, as well as a sharpshooter. Marquis Teague was a team leader as the team came down the stretch.
Kansas never had a chance. They were over-matched from the beginning, just as they were back in November. The defense was far too strong and the offense way too forceful.
Tonight, UK celebrates in every fashion it can. I bid congratulations to the magnificent players that wore the big blue uniform this year—whether they leave this university or not, they’ve left this university with more than they could have ever imagined.
