UConn defies the implausible

So I was wrong. No tears in sight.

All’s well that ends well: UConn 60, Kentucky 54.

Unbelievable, the inconceivable run was for real. Implausible it seemed, unimaginable, improbable, unthinkable, mind-boggling.

UConn in the NCAA winner’s circle, cutting the nets, lifting the trophies. Kentucky the runner up, having come together when it counted, coming close, but falling short.

Congratulations to the Huskies, congratulations to the American Athletic Conference, congratulations to all underdogs everywhere.

The Huskies adding to their list of national championships: 1999, 2004, 2011 and, now, 2014.

The University of Louisville basketball program proudly passes the championship mantle to University of Connecticut. Last team standing in 2014.
