“We’re playing a basketball game,” said UK head coach John Calipari about facing an intrastate rival in the 2012 Final Four. “The drama of the game will be on the staff. But I don’t have many Kentucky players on my team. They don’t know all that stuff. I’ll tell them to get off the message boards, don’t worry about the Twitter and the Facebook. Don’t buy into it.”
- (2) Ohio State Buckeyes [-2½] vs (2) Kansas Jayhawks [+2½] – Mercedes-Benz Superdome (New Orleans, LA) – 8:49 PM ET – OVER/UNDER: 137½ points
“I appreciated that everyone doubted this basketball team, said we were the underdogs, we weren’t good enough, mentally strong enough, not physically strong enough, mentally immature, we heard it all,” said Buckeyes star Jared Sullinger. “When we were going through that slump in February, everybody was saying this basketball team was kind of on a downhill.
“We heard negative comments. I want to thank y’all because through all the adversity, we constantly pushed through that. We came from nothing, according to you all, to something now.”
