Final Four

#4Kentucky (29-8) 68
#3Connecticut (30-9) 66

Calipari’s latest crop of freshmen has Big Blue Nation in the Final Four for the first time since 1998.

And according to the WhatIfSports’ prediction engine, the Wildcats’ Houston stay will be extended as Kentucky advances to the national title game, ending UConn’s miraculous March with a 68-66 victory.

Final Four

#11VCU (28-11) 72
#8Butler (27-9) 69

It’s fitting these loveable long shots will battle for the chance to slay historic powerhouses in the nation’s title game.

While the early sentiment seems to be favoring the experienced and veteran Bulldogs, the WhatIfSports’ engines expect Shaka Smart and VCU to emerge victorious over Butler.

Final Four

#4Kentucky (29-8) 71
#11VCU (28-11) 66

It’s hard to fathom anyone outside the commonwealth of Kentucky rooting for the boys in blue in this David versus Goliath matchup.

Unfortunately, emotional attachment is not an engine influence, as the computers calculate the Wildcats cutting down the nets with a 71-66 conquest.
