Fans can watch the Kentucky vs. UConn basketball game live online and see which unlikely team takes home the 2014 NCAA championship title.
The 2014 NCAA tournament has boiled down to two familiar teams playing the unfamiliar role as Cinderella.
Kentucky, which two years ago won the title, stumbled in the regular season but turned it on during their conference tournament to earn a No. 8 seed. UConn, which handed Florida one of its two regular season losses before knocking off the overall No. 1 seed again in the Final Four, is a No. 7 seed.
The game tips off Monday at 9:10 pm ET from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. It will be the highest combined seeds of championship games in NCAA history.
Fans who watch the Kentucky vs. UConn game live online will see a UConn squad that many believed wouldn’t win a single game in the tournament. But now an incredible run has put them in the championship game, and UConn has its defense to thank.
“Hopefully we have an opportunity to fall back on our defense,” second-year coach Kevin Ollie said. “We have been doing that the whole year.”
Kentucky started out ranked No. 1 in preseason rankings, but fell out of the top 25 entirely after some tough losses. Now they have turned it on at the right time, and are relishing the chance to bring home another national title.
“Playing against Connecticut, I mean, I’m just happy we’re still playing,” said Wildcats coach John Calipari.
Fans who watch the 2014 NCAA championship game live online will see an unlikely team win, but not an unfamiliar one. Combined UConn and Kentucky have won six of the last 18 NCAA titles.
