John Calipari: ‘This is not about me’
For just the second time in 10 years, the No. 1 overall seed won it all. Kansas fans might not agree, but the best team of 2012 stood on the stage celebrating in front of 70,913 inside the Superdome.
“This is not about me, this is about these 13 players,” (John) Calipari said. “This is about the Big Blue Nation. But I don’t know of any team that has sacrificed for each other like this team and they deserve this moment, they really do.”
How good is this Wildcats team? They won four of six games in this year’s tournament by at least 12 points and none was closer than eight. Monday night, they built that 18-point first-half lead without Anthony Davis, the AP player of the year, scoring a single point.
