First of all, I am a sports fan.  Seconds of all, I am an alumnus of University of Kentucky.  Third of all, I am a die-hard fan of University of Kentucky basketball.  I am forever a proud member of the Big Blue Nation. 

So when news like this comes out, I go berserk.

Sports Illustrated, the premier sports magazine in the world, just announced that 2014 NCAA Round-32 between Kentucky Wildcats and Wichita State Shockers is the 2014 Game of The Year 

Fred VanVleet's potential game-winning shot with 1.7 seconds left against Kentucky. 


And this is not just for college basketball in the US.  This is for all sports, for all nations in the world.  This trumps the demolition of Brazil by Germany in 2014 World Cup Semifinal.  This trumps Superbowl.  This trumps the 7-game World Series.  Some even went "off the line" by stating that this is one of the greatest NCAA games ever.  Of All Time.

Wichita State came to the Round 32 as the unbeaten, No.1 College Basketball Team in the world.  The last time a team went 35-0 to NCAA Round 32 was 1991, so it has been 23 years since anybody was this good.  They were solid on all lines.  Kentucky, on the other hand, struggled all season long and limped into the NCAA Tournament with blood and guts sprawling all over the floor.  They still managed to secure No.8 Seed but it wouldn't for long until the season was over for them.
Nobody in the world would think that the Wildcats had a chance against the Shockers.  Only 20 people out of 7 billions would think the Wildcats would win this game.  But it turns out those 20 people were the ones that make a difference: the coach and the players.



The game was a war of 3-points where both teams traded heavy blows right from the start.  Against everybody's expectation, Kentucky stood tall against Wichita.  14 lead changes were a testament of the intensity of the game.  At 3 seconds remaining Kentucky was up 2 points, and naturally Wichita went for its best player, Fred Van Vleet, to sink a 3 to steal the win.  Kentucky relied on its best defender, Willie Caulie-Stein, to block Van Vleet.  At 1.6 second remaining Van Vleet shot and missed.  Kentucky won a H-U-G-E upset 78-76.

It could've gone either way, but sports are cruel.  The best team doesn't always get the win.  Kentucky went on to the final but failed to get the championship.  If Wichita State won this game, there was no doubt it would win the championship. 

Oh, wait a minute.  There's no such things as "certainty" in sports.  That's why it's called "Madness".  That's why we love it.
