NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Kentucky's Anthony Davis has been selected
the Most Outstanding Player at the Final Four after dominating
defensively in Monday night's NCAA championship game.
The freshman forward had a rough night on offense, scoring six
points on 1-of-10 shooting. He made up for it with defense, tying a
championship game record with six blocked shots and altering
several others in Kentucky's 67-59 win over Kansas.
Davis, who set an NCAA freshman record with 186 blocked shots,
helped Kentucky hold the Jayhawks to 35 percent shooting. He also
had 16 rebounds, five assists and three steals in leading Kentucky
to its eighth national title and first since 1998.
He wa on the all-tournament team by teammates Michael
Kidd-Gilchrist and Doron Lamb, along with Kansas' Thomas Robinson and Tyshawn Taylor.
