If the first Final Four game between VCU and Butler is (in terms of NCAA tournament experience) the battle between two college basketball small fries, the second game between UConn and Kentucky is a collegiate hoops heavyweight championship bout...Ali and Frazier.
Kentucky has had 51 tournament appearances with a tournament record of 107-46, 13 Final Fours and seven championships.
UConn has had 29 tournament appearances with a tournament record of 46-28, three Final Fours and two championships.
When the Wildcats and Huskies meet on Saturday night, they will have recent history from which to draw: The two teams faced each other in late November at the Maui Invitational, with UConn coming out on top, 84-67.
Let's look at this outstanding Final Four matchup between No. 4 seed Kentucky and No. 2 seed UConn and see if we can discover some details that could influence the game's outcome.
