Kentucky knocks off North Carolina to advance to title game in March Madness poll

Down goes North Carolina.

Doing the unimaginable, your two-seed Kentucky Wildcats have knocked off the one-seed North Carolina Tar Heels to secure a spot in the National Championship!

…… a Twitter poll.

Kentucky’s five-man lineup of John Wall, Tony Delk, Tayshaun Prince, Anthony Davis, and DeMarcus Cousins took down UNC’s bunch of Kenny Smith, Michael Jordan, Vince Carter, Tyler Hansbrough, and James Worthy. The Cats received 55 percent of a total 40,168 votes, compared to North Carolina’s 45 percent.

They will take on either (1) UCLA or (4) Florida in the national championship, which will be officially announced tomorrow.

UCLA’s all-time team consists of Russell Westbrook, Gail Goodrich, Reggie Miller, Bill Walton, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, while the Gators have Erving Walker, Bradley Beal, Chandler Parsons, Al Horford, and JoakimĀ Noah.

If you’re really dying to, you can vote for that below:

No matter what the haters say, the Big Blue Nation doesn’t lose in meaningless Twitter polls.

    BBN were upset that Issel and mashburn were left out and that the most winningest team in college basketball was a 2 seed.

    My heart says KY over NC but reality says these NC players all stayed because there was no one and done and those veterans would have stomped our freshmen’s asses. Other than Delk we don’t have a real gauge to measure our freshmen against those seniors.

    The fact that Dan Issel, Kenny Walker or Jamal Mashburn were left off our team is a travesty. Boogie? Prince? Seriously????

    I would bemoan that a mere child put our team together- someone too young to have real knowledge of UK’s talent-rich history, but look at the UCLA team. Kareem, Goodrich and Walton are from the stone age, but are, in fact, worthy of being on their All Time Five.

    To the world at large this is what UK has become- 1 and Done U.

      Huh? Sorry couldn’t follow your way too old and out of date mindset. Maybe get someone who is more current to explain things to you I person?
