With a healthy 38-0 record, the Kentucky Wildcats were bound and determined to become the first team in college basketball since the 1975-76 Indiana Hoosiers to be undefeated for a whole season.
Fans were beyond anxious for that day to come. Players tried to keep their calm throughout games, avoiding the tension from crowds and opposing players.
However, the Wisconsin Badgers did what everyone thought to be the impossible: they defeated the Kentucky Wildcats. This is the first time since 1941 for the Badgers to be attending a final.
The final score of the game was 71-64, with Wisconsin taking the win over Kentucky. Here’s what some of the Nashville Christian students had to say about it.
“I’m overjoyed that Kentucky lost,” said Freshman Will Irwin. “I strongly dislike Kyler Perry as well, because he’s very cocky. For example, when they beat a team by 50 points, all he said was, ‘They didn’t try hard enough.’”
“I was happy that Wisconsin beat Kentucky,” said Sophomore David Whelan. “Kentucky started running away with it, and I started freaking out, but thankfully Wisconsin won the game. They deserved it and overall, college basketball needed a new team to win a championship or major game.”
“It was a good game overall, but Wisconsin deserved to win,” said Freshman Brooks Cummings. “I think Wisconsin wanted it more than Kentucky did, and, truthfully, I think that’s why Kentucky lost.”
