The upcoming Final Four in New Orleans may be devoid of underdogs, but it will not be lacking in drama and intrigue. The showdown between the Big East Champion Louisville Cardinals, winners of the NCAA tournament’s West Division and the Kentucky Wildcats, winners of the South Division and the nation’s top-ranked team, has all the makings of a tournament classic.
Calipari played the diplomat this week saying, "I’m going to enjoy this. I’m not worried about who we’re playing. I’m just happy we’re still playing."
For his part, Pitino provided a better dose of reality: "There will be people at Kentucky that will have a nervous breakdown if they lose to us. ... They’ve got to put the fences up on bridges."
