Since George Mason’s Cinderella run in the NCAA Tournament, it has been a crap shoot. A lot of upsets and senior-laden mid-majors making long runs. A lot of this can be blamed on the NBA’s age requirement for the draft. Can Kentucky win with a team with a group of freshmen leading the way?
Anthony Davis, and his unibrow, is a monster in the paint. He is leading all of college basketball in blocks and is already setting career records at Kentucky. They are the most complete team that Kentucky has had since Antoine Walker, Ron Mercer, Walter McCarty, & Tony Delk were college students. Their only loss came against Indiana and with a buzzer-beater.
Syracuse has a shot at holding their own against Kentucky. I’ve watched many of their games, but both teams could definitely have one bad game…and that is all you need to have to get booted from the tournament.
The Wildcats are the teams with a bull’s eye on their backs. It will take a nearly perfect tournament for them to win, since most of their rotation will have careers in the NBA.
