Scoochie Smith #11 of the Dayton Flyers battles for a loose ball against Kasey Hill #0 and Dorian Finney-Smith #10 of the Florida Gators during the south regional final of the 2014 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament at the FedExForum on March 29, 2014 in Memphis, Tennessee.

Is it mere coincidence that much of the Final Four play is coming down to teams from states with potential Republican candidates for president in 2016?

There’s Florida’s Jeb Bush:

Kentucky’s Rand Paul:

Wisconsin’s Scott Walker:

And Connecticut’s — well, World Wrestling Entertainment’s Linda McMahon isn’t running for president, at least not yet.

But she is the recipient of this year’s Prescott Bush award by the Connecticut Republican Party, the state party’s highest honor. And guess who’s coming to dinner April 10 in Stamford for the keynote speech at the party’s dinner?

A grandson of the award’s namesake: Jeb Bush.

So what will we make of a Florida-Connecticut championship match on April 7?
