Kentucky Fans Are Taking Saturday's Loss Pretty Hard

Every NCAA Tournament loss stings.

Kentucky guard Andrew Harrison apologized for obscene language directed toward Wisconsin center Frank Kaminsky caught on a live microphone during Saturday’s postgame press conference.

Forget 40-0. This is why Monday's Wisconsin-Duke Championship Game Matters

The most serious bid for 40-0 to date is complete and unsuccessful.

In many ways, Kentucky-Wisconsin isn’t a rematch.

 

The coaches are the same, the jerseys are the same and many of the players are the same from the Wildcats’ 74-73 win in last year’s Final Four. But at the same time, these are two different teams meeting in the national semifinal.

 

The most obvious change is with Kentucky. The Wildcats reached last year’s Final Four without an injured Willie Cauley-Stein and before freshmen Karl-Anthony Towns, Trey Lyles and Tyler Ulis arrived.

Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski is trying to play coy that his team was not a Final Four contender from the start. 

 

True, this was a Blue Devils team that lost three of six during a stretch in January, including a loss to Miami at home.
