While most of us are still trying to get over that win (I was way too hyped to sleep last night), the national media was all over the game and has cranked out some really great articles today. Here are just a few:
-For The Win/ USA Today’s Chris Chase has an awesome article about how last night’s game was every sports fan’s dream. In the piece, Chase highlights six different reasons why this game was a prime example of why we all love sports.
–Kentucky basketball survives. That’s the statement Dan Wetzel makes in this piece about Kentucky’s game last night along with a little preview of what’s to come in Saturday’s Final Four. Best quote from the article? “Sure, they have great players, impossible size, and breathtaking skill. They also have an otherworldly will to win.”
–Sporting News said that the night belonged to all the Wildcats, but definitely Willie Cauley-Stein.
-“Kentucky is still perfect, and they have Karl-Anthony Towns to thank for it.”– Adam Zagoria
-Gregg Doyel says Notre Dame wasn’t scared of Kentucky; that thinking almost won it for them, but not quite.
