I'll take Kentucky, the only college team to ever have two Tyson Chandlers in the paint.

Cincy would have beaten them had they shot decently from the floor.

Missed wide open jumpers, layups. They were hanging tough with them.

Can't blame Cincy players for nervous shooting...Kentucky stacked the first few rows with parole officers...

I think the officials got caught up in Wisconsin's comeback because they definitely helped the Badgers with two critical calls.

The first one was on the shot that tied the game at 60. The Wisconsin player let that one go a full second after the shot clock expired.

Then a little bit later, Wisconsin had, I believe, a one point lead, the player drove to the basket and missed the shot. Kentucky was called for a phantom foul- never even came close to hitting the shooter's hand.

I could tell both of these calls were wrong from live action.

And I'm not even a Kentucky fan.

Kentucky still deserved to lose, they sucked.

Towns was unstoppable, yet they ignored him in critical moments. Morons settled for jump shots and slowed the game down to Wisconsin's pace. They played the same way against Notre Dame and were lucky to win.

Overrated and could have lost 4-5 regular season games easy. Sounds silly but it's true.

Not silly at all..every great team has close calls..even undefeated teams...look at Dolphins 72 or Hoosiers 76

I think in the end the difference was maturity...there's a big mental difference between a 19 year old and a 22 year old.

I think that's why the Fab Five got close but didn't win it.

I feel like there have been many teams over the years better than this Kentucky team. College basketball loses a lot of talent to the NBA every year. "Back in the day" amazing players played 4 years and those teams were borderline NBA teams talent wise.

Many of these guys struggle when they go to the NBA. LeBron's and Kobe's don't grow on tree's.

This was a case of the inexperienced, awesome physical specimen/lottery picks, losing to the experienced, less physically dominant, mature college basketball players.

One of the reasons I detest Calipari because he has turned what's supposed to be something for STUDENT athletes into a one-year NBA apprenticeship....and Kentucky taxpayers pay for it.
