Kentucky and Kansas meet on Monday night in New Orleans with a chance to take home college basketball's biggest prize.

The 2012 NCAA tournament concludes tonight as the No. 1 Kentucky Wildcats and No. 2 Kansas Jayhawks square off for the national championship. The game is a rematch of a Nov. 15 meeting that the Wildcats won, 75-65.

In the Final Four, Kentucky defeated its in-state rival No. 4 Louisville Cardinals, 69-61, while Kansas rallied from a 13-point deficit to knock off the No. 2 Ohio State Buckeyes, 64-62.

The game will feature perhaps the two best players in college basketball -- Kentucky's Anthony Davis and Kansas' Thomas Robinson. Davis won The Associated Press Player of the Year, the Wooden Award and the Naismith Trophy while Robinson was a finalist for each award.

Monday night also marks a chance for Kentucky head coach John Calipari to avenge a 2008 loss in the title game to Kansas. Calipari's Memphis Tigers squad fell to the Jayhawks, 75-68, in overtime.
