Previewing Sunday’s NCAA Tournament
South Region
Kentucky (35-2) vs. Baylor (30-7)

This has the potential to be a wild one. Kentucky and Indiana played an old-fashioned high-scoring game Friday night. Kentucky thrives in that type of game but so does Baylor. Expect lots of spectacular offense, dunks and three pointers. Defense will be optional and the team that locks down first will win. Based on Friday night’s games, Kentucky still looks like the best team in the tournament. Baylor played its first good game of the tournament giving the indication they are capable of winning this.

Midwest Region
North Carolina (32-5) vs. Kansas (30-6)

A meeting of college basketball aristocracy that unfortunately will be marred by the probable absence of North Carolina point guard Kendall Marshall, who’s injured. Without him, the Tar Heels should have been eliminated by Ohio if the Bobcats had made one more free throw. Kansas’ guards should be able to take advantage of this situation plus the Jayhawks have the big guys, Thomas Robinson and Jeff Withey, who can at least make things difficult for the Heels’ duo of Tyler Zeller and John Henson.
