Kentucky (37-2) vs. Kansas (32-6)
Kansas has made a habit of falling behind before rallying to win. That won’t be a good strategy against Kentucky. The Jayhawks have to play their best from the beginning. They need to capitalize on their strength, getting the ball inside to Thomas Robinson and Jeff Withey which could lead to some foul trouble for Kentucky.
The Jayhawks’ guards have to shoot better than they have in other tournament games. It sounds like a lot to ask. Kentucky is primed to win a national title. The well-balanced Wildcats can get winning offensive plays from any number of players. On defense, they have the best shot blocker in the nation, Anthony Davis. It’s a difficult combination to beat.
