2012 NCAA Tournament Overall Review

1 of 6

Apr 2, 2012; New Orleans, LA, USA; Kentucky Wildcats head coach John Calipari is presented with the NCAA national championship trophy after the finals of the 2012 NCAA men

Well it’s all over. The NCAA Tournament came to an end on Monday as Kentucky defeated Kansas to win their eighth national championship in school history. It was also the first national championship for coach John Calipari. Surprisingly, Kentucky defeated Kansas with Anthony Davis scoring under ten points in the game. However, Davis contributed in other ways especially defensively with twelve defensive rebounds and six blocks. Kentucky also had a huge game out of Doron Lamb who had twenty-two points on the night. With Kentucky playing so well on the defensive side of the ball, Kansas could not penetrate to paint like they had so much success doing in their previous NCAA Tournament games.

With the NCAA Tournament in the book, I will break down the whole tournament in countdown fashion. I will breakdown the five most memorable moments from this 2012 NCAA Tournament all the way from the Round of 64 to the National Championship in New Orleans. Finally, I will give my final overall grade of this year’s NCAA Tournament.
