The 5 Most Exciting Potential National Championship Matchups
We all will love and savor this tournament from Round 1 until the Final Game is played in Indianapolis being the best time to be a sports fan of the year. I'm in no rush to get to the National Title Game because I'm going to really enjoy this tournament and miss it when it's over but here I will give you the best potential National Title Games in my opinion that would be most exciting.
Somewhat of a longshot to happen but if it does it is a game that certainly has the makings of a good title game between two teams that have yet to win a National Championship and haven't reached the Final Four in over 40+ years.
It would be an especially great story for Baylor being it's been 50 years since they won an NCAA tournament game.
This game would provide a New Orleans Saints type of story for the Baylor Bears who've had to overcome scandals at their school and haven't had a winning history.
One of the meetings they had this year it was a great game in which the Wildcats won by 3.
This time around it would be a classic that nobody expected between two schools that are easy to love(unless you're a Kansas fan who hates K-State).
It would provide a great storyline for a Baylor school who could erase past struggles against a Kansas State team who's struggled in previous years and worked hard to get to this point
Last time these two teams met we had a classic in the Garden for the Big East Championship in which Dasean Butler gave West Virginia the win in the closing seconds of that game.
This time if both teams were to get all the way to Indianapolis there would be even more at stake and a much bigger title.
It was a classic the last time these 2 teams met, and would not be a surprise to anybody if it was this time around on a bigger stage in Indianapolis for all the marbels.
The Big East regular season Champions.vs.The Big East Tournament Champions would square off in this one.
Last time they played it was a 2 point margin of victory in a win for the Syracuse Orange down in Morgantown. These 2 teams are very evenly matched and play a similar style on offense.
If West Virginia and Syracuse meet for the National Championship you can expect an even game and a very close matchup that comes down to the last minute of the game.
Wes Johnson.vs.Dasean Butler is a great matchup to watch for here
Two Big East teams that have had alot of great matchups against each other. This would feature two Big East rivals that have alot of talent on their roster and would get fans all over the East Coast jumping to see.
Scottie Reynolds is one of the best clutch players in the NCAA, and Wesley Johnson was voted Big East player of the year this year.
Villanova upset a #1 seed last time they were in the National Championship Game and this one would have the makings of another classic since both teams are so familiar with each other
These are the Top 2 seeds in the Tournament and teams with the least losses this year. It would amazing to see two 31-2 teams go into the NCAA title game with 37-2 records a peice. Besides that it would be a matchup featuring two of the three schools in College Basketball with 2,000+ wins and a world of history and tradition including 10 combined National Championships, 7 for Kentucky,and 3 for Kansas.
Last time a John Calipari coached team played a Bill Self coached team when Memphis and Kansas met in the 2008 National Championship Game it was a classic.
Seeing Sherron Collins go up against John Wall in the National Championship Game would be the best 1 on 1 matchup in this tournament. There's talent and great matchups everywhere such as Eric Bledsoe against Xavier Henry and Cole Aldrich against Demarcus Cousins.
If this happens may be the best National Championship Game we've seen in a long time
