March Madness concludes in New Orleans, and there is no shortage of storied basketball schools in this year’s Final Four.

Kentucky will face off against in-state rival Louisville in a blue versus red showdown in the Big Easy. The Wildcats are favored to win the whole shebang this year, but the well-coached Cardinals are in their way. 

The Louisville Cardinals have Final Four veteran Rick Pitino at the helm, which will give the team an edge in the experience department. However, the Kentucky Wildcats are loaded with elite talent and own the all-time wins record over the Cardinals. 

The Wildcats have the No. 1 projected pick in the 2012 NBA draft in Anthony Davis, but the Cardinals counter with battle-tested guard Peyton Siva.

Kentucky has overwhelming talent and depth, so the nod for star players has to go to the Wildcats. Louisville takes the cake in the swagger department, as they can claim Mohammad Ali, the Louisville Slugger and the Kentucky Derby. See which team college basketball contributor Aliko Carter picks to win in this edition of Home Court Advantage, sponsored by State Farm.
