Tale Of The Tape For The NCAA Title: Anthony Davis Vs. Thomas Robinson

By: 04.02.12

Finally, these didn’t happen in the context of a game, but they’re awesome. Davis, in September, took on a Wildcat fan at an annual fan campout before practices began. There’s the requisite “I know I can’t handle you but I’ll try” joking by the student before Davis gets down to business. I love how he tries to self-deprecate while Davis just stares his down afterward. It’s, um, impressive.

Robinson’s best highlight isn’t from hoops at all. He gained national notoriety when, as a sophomore, his grandmother and grandfather died in three weeks. Five days after his grandfather died, Robinson’s mother died. He took in his sister, Jayla, and turned tragedy into a chance for a title tonight.

Will Kentucky or Kansas win tonight?
