Kentucky and Kansas already met this season

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Monday night's national championship game
will be the second time this season Kentucky and Kansas meet with
all of college basketball watching.

The first matchup was in mid-November at Madison Square Garden
as part of a doubleheader. Second-ranked Kentucky beat No. 12
Kansas 75-65, but it wasn't the featured game.

That happened to be the night Duke beat Michigan State 74-69 to
give Mike Krzyzewski his 903rd career victory, the one that moved
him past Bob Knight to the top of Division I's all-time list for
men's basketball.

This time around the Wildcats and Jayhawks are the main
attraction.

Five months ago, sophomores Doron Lamb and Terrence Jones led
the Wildcats to the victory with Anthony Davis, one of three
freshmen starters, having seven of the team's 13 blocked shots.

Tyshawn Taylor scored 22 points to lead the Jayhawks.
