The 2011-2012 NCAA Basketball season comes to an end on Monday when the No. 1 seed Kentucky Wildcats take on the No. 2 Kansas Jayhawks in the 2012 NCAA Tournament Championship Game. This game, therefore, is a rematch between two coaches who have faced each other in the national championship game. In 2008, Kansas' Bill Self picked up a victory over then Memphis Tigers head coach John Calipari, now at the helm of the Wildcats.
The Jayhawks are on the hunt for their fourth tournament title, which would break the current tie they are in with the Connecticut Huskies. But they would then just enter into a tie with the Duke Blue Devils with four titles. Kentucky, meanwhile, can chip away at UCLA's 11 tournament wins by winning its eighth, last capturing it all in 1998.
Game time/date: 7:23 p.m. MT, Monday, April 2, 2012
Location: Mercedes-Benz Superdome, New Orleans, La.
