NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Anthony Davis did everything but score.
He didn't need to.
That ugly one-fer from the floor aside, the player of the year was simply sublime in Kentucky's 67-59 victory over Kansas on Monday night that gave the Wildcats their eighth national title. Despite finishing with just six points, all but two on free throws, Davis flirted with a double-double. He tied the NCAA championship game record with six blocks, grabbed 16 rebounds, and also had five assists and three steals.
If this was the last game at Kentucky for the 19-year-old freshman, expected to be the No. 1 pick in this summer's NBA draft, it was a heck of a way to go out. As the final seconds ticked down, cheers of "M-V-P! M-V-P!" echoed throughout the arena.
