Kentucky has the game's most dynamic talent in freshman point guard John Wall.

Please people.

I know my bracket is done. It’s been done.

Three of my four Final Four picks have already been eliminated. Georgetown, my national champion pick, couldn’t get out of the first round, Pitt didn’t have enough to push past Xavier and Louisville lost to Cal in the first round.

Yeah, I’m certainly a risk taker, but it’s all good. My only saving grace is that Kentucky is not only still in, but now the favorite to win it all since Kansas got upset in the second round by Northern Iowa.

I have the Wildcats making it to the title game so I’ll be tuned in when they play Cornell tonight at 9:30. UK has the most talent in the tournament, but Cornell is way more experienced.

However, if one team has at least four future NBA players, it should win a game like this. Then again, I had Georgetown winning the whole darn thing so what do I know.

Who else has dunked on the reigning MVP?

Nick Young and Al Harrington for starters. Witness for yourself.
