Kentucky vs. Kansas NCAA Championship Game Open Thread

Meet the future #23 of the Wine and Gold. (Okay, maybe he'll pick a different number...)

Tonight at 8:23 CST, the Kentucky Wildcats and Kansas Jayhawks face off for the NCAA Title. Many pundits rate Kentucky's Anthony Davis and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Kansas' Thomas Robinson as their top 3 prospects for the 2012 NBA Draft.

While I don't have a draft board, and won't be revealing one until the day of the draft, are these guys near the top of your current draft board? The Cavaliers are going to get the number one pick which I covet so much and select Anthony Davis to be the All-Star partner that Kyrie Irving needs up front. If somehow the Cavaliers pass on Davis, then the other two guys in this game are still worth watching as they all have a solid chance of suiting up for the Wine and Gold for years to come.

Best of luck to these players and their teammates as they play tonight. As I said a couple days ago in the Final Four Saturday Thread, I've got Kentucky over Kansas in this one. Use this thread to discuss the draft, the game or any other basketball related topics you want tonight.

P.S. The Cavs are 4th in the Draft Lottery standings (kinda sorta).
