Kansas Showed Its Greatness
April 8, 2008
Let’s face it: no team is perfect in college basketball, and this year (especially) there was no definitive dominant team for the whole tournament. UNC dominated their first four opponents, but then they folded. Memphis had supposedly overcome their free throw problem, at least until last night when the law of averages came to life. Davidson seemed like it couldn’t be stopped until Stephen Curry’s big shots stopped falling against Kansas. And Kansas; the Kansas Jayhawks almost fell to the cinderella #10 seed in the Elite 8 and definitely showed it’s vulnerability almost blowing their 28 point first-half lead. It was clear that no team had been perfect this March, but somebody had to win.
As for Mario Chalmers’ three pointer that tied the game, 63-63, with 2.1 seconds – that’s what greatness is made of.
