Before the game, Rex Chapman stirred the pot when he said that win or lose, Calipari will be the next head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers. For the next two hours, that talk dominated the BBN, and was a major distraction. Cal was asked about the rumor after the game and shot it down:

Young and Randle join Shabazz Napier, Ryan Boatright and DeAndre Daniels on the All-Final Four team. Young scored a team-high 20 points in the loss. Randle contributed 10 and 6.

It was a good run, Cats fans, but it fell short in the title game tonight in North Texas. UConn defeated our Kentucky Wildcats, 60-54, to win the 2014 national championship. Only two Wildcats scored in double figures, while the Connecticut backcourt of Napier and Boatright combined for 36 points.

Even though he’s also a Louisville fan, boxing legend Muhammad Ali is cheering for Kentucky tonight, according to TMZ Sports. Two-time boxing champ Andre Berto spent time with Ali this past weekend, and told the gossip outlet that Ali will be cheering “left and right” for the Cats tonight:
Berto says Ali and his family are BIG TIME college basketball fans and were “cheering left and right” for Kentucky. For the record, Ali hails from the Bluegrass State … and Berto says he’s certainly rooting for UK in tonight’s championship game.
Can’t hurt to have The Greatest on your side, right?
