In terms of seeds, last night’s NCAA men’s basketball national championship game between UConn and Kentucky wasn’t that exciting. With the Huskies a seven-seed and the Wildcats an eight-seed, the final game of the 2014 NCAA Tournament featured the highest combined seed total ever, which kind of makes you wonder why teams bother playing all those regular season games.
That being said, when it comes to pure college basketball pedigree, championship match-ups don’t get much better. Heading into the game last night, these programs had 11 national championships between them, with five coming since 1996. Thus, whichever team won, they would be adding another chapter to a legendary history.
Of course, as you know by now, that team was UConn. They beat UK 60-54, and moved up a spot on the list of teams with the most national championships.
