How Connecticut Wins

Connecticut needs to keep playing good defense if they want a better shot at winning the game. Their opponents average 63.5 points per game and that ranks 31st in the country. The Huskies will also have to keep drawing fouls and going to the free throw line. They shoot 77.4% from the free throw line and that ranks 4th in the country. The final thing they need to do is limit the number of turnovers the commit. They average 11.5 turnover per game and that ranks 93rd in the country.

 

How Kentucky Wins

Kentucky will win this game if they keep scoring at a high rate. They average 75.3 points per game and that ranks 53rd in the country. The Wildcats also need to play better defense. Their opponents score an average of 66.8 points per game and that ranks 79th in the country. The final thing they will need to do is keep rebounding the ball the way they do. They average 40.4 rebounds per game and that ranks 6th in the country.

 

My Prediction

Connecticut wants to make this a lower scoring defensive battle. While the Wildcats want to make this a high scoring back and forth game. Whichever team plays to their style will have the best chance at winning the game.

I think that this game is a higher scoring game. I think that the Wildcats will lead for most of the game. However I think that the Huskies will pull away late. I think that free throw shooting will help the Huskies towards the end of the game and they will win the National Championship.

Final Score

Connecticut: 78
Kentucky: 73
