UCONN vs Kentucky 2014 NCAA Championship: Start time, Vegas odds, prediction

UCONN Huskies or Kentucky Wildcats? That is the question. The 2014 NCAA Championship live stream schedule will end tonight, and for one team it will be a season of greatness, while the other will have the entire off season to think about how they fell just one game short of a National Championship.

According to a Sportsline report on April 7 two of the biggest bracket busters will square off as the Connecticut Huskies will face the Kentucky Wildcats in tonight's NCAA Final. If you filled out a NCAA March Madness bracket had No. 8 Kentucky playing #7 Connecticut in this year's NCAA Tournament finale, congratulations because you stand alone.

In one of the craziest tournaments in recent memory, two high seeds will battle for basketball supremacy tonight in a battle between cats and dogs!

This match-up is a great example of how things can change from year to year in sports. Neither one of these teams qualified for last year's NCAA Tournament, and now they will battle for a championship.

If UCONN is going to win they will need Shabazz Napier to play big. Napier averaged 17.9 points per game this season, but it is his leadership that Huskies need most. For the young Wildcats it will be crashing the boards with their big men that could be the difference. These young 'Cats were a preseason No. 1 back in October and they are now showing the basketball world why.

They may not have been top seeds according to the NCAA committee, but UCONN and Kentucky are the top two teams right now, and that is all that matters.

The facts:

  • Who: Kentucky (29-10) vs. Connecticut (31-8)
  • Tipoff: 9:10 p.m. ET
  • Television: CBS
  • Favorite: Kentucky (-3.5)

Prediction: UCONN busted my bracket into millions of pieces the last two games? Any team that beats Michigan State and Florida in back to back games has my attention. The experts like Kentucky, but I am taking the Huskies.

Pick: UCONN +3.5
