2012 Final Four: Kansas Vs. Kentucky For National Title Features Memorable Match-Up

This will be a weekend to remember. That's what ESPN's Myron Medcalf writes about the 2012 Final Four that will ultimately pit the Kentucky Wildcats against the Kansas Jayhawks. One team has been dominant and heralded all season. Another was questioned early and had to silence the doubters. But now that KU and UK stand to face each other on Monday night, there are going to be several exciting storylines in play.

Medcalf writes, "The Kansas-Kentucky national title matchup features a multitude of fascinating storylines. Robinson versus Davis in a battle of national title candidates. John Calipari versus Bill Self, who led Kansas to a win over Calipari's Memphis squad in the 2008 national title game. The two teams with the most wins in college basketball. And this is the first time that the Final Four has featured three rematches, per ESPN Stats & Info."

Kentucky took care of rival Louisville while KU bested Ohio State in the second half to set up this incredible match. Kentucky will be favored, no doubt, but everyone will still be curious to see if Bill Self's Jayhawks can do what they've been doing all post-season -- coming from behind and doing just enough to win.
