The Kentucky Wildcats beat the Kansas Jayhawks 67-59 Monday night in New Orleans, claiming their eighth NCAA men's basketball title and head coach John Calipari's first.
The Jayhawks trailed by 14 at halftime, and just 5 points separated the teams with about a minute left in the game. But Kansas couldn't get any closer to beating Kentucky, a team stacked with young talent that had dominated the whole tournament.
Kansas City, MO – Looks like the University of Kansas may become home to the original typewritten rules of basketball. The game was invented by James Naismith in Massachusetts in 1892, six years before he became a KU professor and basketball coach.
