UConn Defeats Purdue for NCAA Men’s College Basketball Title

Purdue lost the NCAA Men’s College Basketball Championship to UConn Monday night by a score of 75-60. Zach Edey scored 37 points in his final game as a Boilermaker. It was their first appearance in the NCAA Men’s College Basketball National Championship game since 1969.

For Connecticut, it was the school’s 6th national title as they became the first school since Florida in 2006 and 2007 to win back to back national championships in men’s college basketball.

We will find out in a few hours, but we are betting for the first time ever, the women’s college basketball championship may have earned higher ratings than the men’s college basketball championship. Sunday, during South Carolina’s win over Caitlin Clark and the Iowa Hawkeyes, an average of 18.7 million people tuned in. At its peak 24 million people watched. Wow!

A day after we learned John Calipari is leaving Kentucky basketball we also learned that he reportedly talked to the Ohio State Buckeyes about their coaching job vacancy. It seemed Ohio State basketball was not ready to eat Calipari’s 33 million dollar buyout.

Now that college basketball is over it is time to talk college football. (It’s always time to talk college football on Locked on Big 10!). But spring football games begin this weekend. Which Big 10 school brought in the most athletes in from the transfer portal? How about the fewest? We have the answers.

Finally, we close it out with Tuesday Tweets. We may have an eclipse theme here. Tune in to find out on Locked on Big 10 with Craig Shemon!
