It was definitely one of the better games.
Here is the best championship game I've ever watched
- Kansas beating Memphis in 2008
Here are some others that were great in the last 20 years:
- Duke beating Butler in 2010
- UNC beating Illinois in 2005
- Syracuse beating Kansas in 2003
- UConn beating Duke in 1999
- Arizona beating Kentucky in 1997
- Arkansas beating Duke in 1994
- UNC beating Michigan in 1993
The teams both brought it and were fairly evenly matched. The officiating reminded.me of everything bad in college sports though.
People love white guys making shots.
That sounds like a relative tapering of interest. I was definitely into it towards the end when it got down to 4 points for Louisville.
I don't know about you guys, but everytime Siva would drive to the basket it was exciting.

It was a solid game -- both teams played well, it wasn't a blowout in one direction or the other, and it was tight down the stretch (even though L'Ville looked well-positioned to win through most of the second half, they weren't running away with it).
But I swear the fact that 90% of the national media has crawled up inside scUM's jock and has been gargling their balls for the last week has caused a very distorted narrative of this game to be pushed out nationally.
As PPTPW listed above, about half the title games of the last 20 years have been decent games. So sure, last night ranks in the top 50% of title games in the last 20 years, but to hear the media describe it so rapturously, you'd think it was Houston vs. NC State all over again.
I have a tough time separating the Final Four games from the final game, so I can see where this game ranks up there. Is the NC State game the best of all time?
