College basketball’s top two elite of Davis and Robinson go for all the jambalaya tonight in New Orleans.
Uh-huh…exactly as I thought: Kentucky vs. Kansas for the national championship on Monday night. It took a valiant effort by Kansas (and likely a firm tongue lashing from head coach Bill Self) to get the Jayhawks to finally show up in their second half semi-final against Ohio State. Meanwhile, in the other semi-final, Kentucky handled their business and defeated Louisville, although the Cardinals did put up a noble fight.
Now it comes down to the two best players in college basketball this season, Kentucky’s Anthony Davis and Kansas’s Thomas Robinson, battling it out for NCAA top dawg. Which will lead his team to the title? Lemme see if I can perfect my Final Four picks…

On January 21, 2011, 20-year old Kansas Jayhawks forward Thomas Robinson became an orphan after his mother, Lisa, died of a heart attack at age 43.
Now, Robinson had no choice, but to play his sophomore year wrought by personal tragedy, after the All-American had lost his grandmother, his grandfather, and his mother all within three weeks of each other.
It would’ve come as no...
Oh you crazed Kentucky fans, are there no limits to your obsessive fandom? If you’re not fighting with Louisville fans at a dialysis clinic, you’re decorating your pets in a Wildcats motif by drawing Anthony Davis’ now famous unibrow onto your cat’s forehead, in what can only be described as an act of extremely mild animal cruelty. Yes, cruelty. Even members of the...
Anthony Davis took a finger to the eye in the national championship game between the Kansas Jayhawks and the Kentucky Wildcats. The eye didn’t prevent Kentucky or Davis from rolling. A Kansas cheerleader flexed her muscles and looked like Anna Watson from Georgia. It looks like couches and maybe houses will burn in Lexington, Kentucky tonight if things keep up. JUMP!
And the awards just continue to pile up for Kentucky freshman, Anthony Davis. The Wildacts big man was announced the Naismith Player of the Year.
He becomes the first player out of the school to win the award and the second freshman since Kevin Durant in 2007. Davis had a strong year, leading Kentucky as the No. 1 ranked team and onto the National Championship.
Second place for...
The spread on Kentucky has climbed to 7 points at some sportsbooks and the betting public continues to back the Wildcats ahead of their battle with Kansas Monday night.
The college basketball national final won't be much of a battle if oddsmakers are right. And it could be a great day for bettors if Kentucky covers the spread.
"The line opened at -6 but it's up to -7...
No matter where Anthony Davis and his buddies go to make their millions, their ol' Kentucky home will long remember this championship season.
The Wildcats hit the jackpot with their lottery picks Monday night, ignoring Davis' bad shooting night and parlaying a roster full of NBA talent into a 67-59 victory over Kansas for the team's eighth national title - and its first...
Won and Done, indeed. Maybe even Over and Out. All that really matters is that Kentucky parlayed a roster full of NBA talent into a 67-59 victory Monday night over Kansas for the team’s eighth national NCAA basketball title – its first since 1998. Kentucky’s top freshman, Anthony Davis, had a rough shooting night, but John Calipari coached this team to a wire-to...

College basketball’s championship trophy is headed back to the Bluegrass State. For the first time in 14 years, it’s Big Blue that can lay claim to being the final team standing in the Big Dance, as the Wildcats completed a 38 win season with an impressive win over a wily Kansas team that scratched and clawed, but ultimately fell short.
Kentucky, led by a team...
-The star for the Wildcats was once again Anthony Davis. Just like Kentucky is clearly the best team in the country Davis is clearly the best player in the nation. All the freshman did against Louisville was finish with 18 points, bring down 14 rebounds, and block 5 shots. He was 7 of 8 shooting from the field. Two of those field...
NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Same story, new night for Kansas. The team that's been teetering on the edge of the tournament since before it even began is now one of the last two left.
Tyshawn Taylor made two big free throws late, and Thomas Robinson finished with 19 points and eight rebounds Saturday night to lift the Jayhawks to a come-from-behind 64-62 win over Ohio State in the Final...
