    UConn has the anti-Anthony Davis in Andre Drummond, maybe the only guy who can hang with him above the rim. Given UConn’s reputation in march, I think we could see UK bounced by the Huskies !

  • Tray

    Agreeed with the person above!!!! if jermery and shabazz combine for 40 and drummond plays defense they win!!!

    That’s a whole lot of “if’s” for a team that underachieved and finished under .500 in conference play.

  • Maty

    Yeah, but if they played that way all year, no way in hell they’d be a 9 seed.

    Call me crazy, but I just don’t think Kentucky is going to win the national championship. They seem to play from behind every time I’ve watched them, and in the tournament, that will come back to haunt you!

    huskies were 9-9 last year in big east. worked out well

  • Kilo

    But, their aint no Kemba Walker comming thru that door this year.

  • Nick

    UNC is taking it home this year, but UCONN will beat Kentucky. Drummond is going to destroy Davis, which will hopefully be a wakeup call for all these GMs who have him as the “clear overall 1st pick”. Either way, Kentucky won’t win it all given they’ll have to go through UCONN and probably Baylor who also has Perry Jones, another dude who could beat Davis in a head to head matchup. My Final Four is UCONN, Memphis, UNC and probably Syracuse.

    Actually swap Syracuse for the Seminoles.

    Everyone who thinks Andre Drummond has something over Anthony Davis is insane!!! I admit that Drummond has gotten better over the season, but I don’t see him stacking up against Davis. Besides, that’s the beauty about Kentucky. Davis don’t HAVE to score. It’s not all about one player. Any given game it will be one of 6 or 7 leading the Wildcats and they play unselfishly so it don’t matter to them. I think these guys got it right.
