Final Four: Kentucky basketball unable to attain perfection


The Ultimatum was reached, and the Kentucky Wildcats were unable to attain perfection. Once again, I state that if you’re a fan of college basketball, but if you’re a fan of one of the programs, it was scrutinizing until the final buzzer.

In the end, the maturity of the Wisconsin Badgers would prove to win out. The boys in red were lead by big man Frank Kaminsky, as the senior rallied out a double-double against the Wildcats, going for 20 points and 11 boards.

The Badgers also had four guys in scoring double figures,  aside from Kaminsky the other three were Sam Dekker with 16, Nigel Hayes 12, Bronson Koenig again with 12.

Ultimately, the Wildcats on the stats end of it all, had a great evening, the Badgers were able to make the plays late, and Kentucky didn’t.

The individual Cats that made their names on the stat sheet included freshman, who led the team once again is Karl-Anthony Towns. KAT totaled 16 points and nine rebounds. He was followed by the Harrison twins, Andrew having 13 points and four assists, and Aaron knocking down 12 points.

As a whole, the Wildcats didn’t have a bad game at all, actually shooting overall better percentages in every stat category. The one category that defined this game however, was the rebounding. Wisconsin dominated the Wildcats, finding 12 more boards than the boys in blue.

While so many people around the nation will scrutinize the players, Coach Cal says they shouldn’t.

"There’s not a single kid on this team you can blame. If you want to blame somebody, blame me.You can’t take away from this season, it was historic."

This season was historic, and it was so much fun to watch. Now our view switches to who will stay, and who will go. The Badgers will play the Duke Blue Devils on Monday to decide this year’s NCAA Tournament Championship.
