Kentucky’s run to the Final Four is setting records

Kentucky’s run to the Final Four has been nothing short of shocking.

A team full of freshmen that spent five months disappointing us with their play has suddenly banded together, won four straight games at the most important part of the season and done so while playing in three of the, what, ten best games of the entire season?

Wins over Wichita State, Louisville and Michigan were all instant classics.

They were also all wins over Final Four teams from last season, and if Kentucky’s run wasn’t impressive enough already, that’s the first time that anyone has reached the Final Four while beating three of the previous season’s participants.

They won’t get the sweep, however. Syracuse got knocked out of the tournament by Dayton back in the Round of 32.

    Wichita State is STILL the team to play them the closest in the tournament, AND they had to do it against Cauley-Stein who, incidentally was the one contesting the 3pt shot by Fred VanVleet at the end of the game!
