OK, I think this is ine of those games we need analysis from Jorge!!...

And in fairness to Jorge - who needs writeup's..its a waste of time, 90% of them on this site are worthlss rtalking about spots and situtations then defending thrmselves teh next day when they lose..I just think people should at least post a play.

On Baylor here +8..GLA

gotta love the over here. Baylor's best strategy would be to slow down the game with their zone, but I dont think they will be capable of that. After watching the Indiana/UK game and Calipari's approach to protecting his starters from getting into foul trouble, I project both teams scoring in the high 70's.

I think the Kentucky D will frustrate the Baylor O into taking a lot of bad shots while the Baylor D will have no such luck. Kentucky is on higher level than the teams Baylor has played so far in this tourny & down the stretch I like siding with the better D.  The line looks right to me, I see Kentucky pulling away in the 2nd half.

Kentucky -8

Baylor has not played a team anywhere near as good as Kentucky.  They also got worked over by the elite Big 12 teams they've played.  Indiana played a near perfect game agaisnt Kentucky and still got beat by double digits.  I think the same thing happens here.

Kentucky -8

After that wild outburst on Friday I think you gotta roll under.  Baylor isn't dumb they won't try and out score them, they'll wanna slow it down and limit the # of UK possessions.

Indian not nearly as good as baylor especially defensively..also agree w/TD if playing a total I'd look hard at the U.

Dubsak,


I'm with you here!  I see a 75 to 65 type game with
Kentucky marching on.  The Cats will make the Bears only three point shooter put it on the deck to get his own shoot which is not his strength and Baylor is long enough to guard the three point line as well.

Also with the length both teams have in the paint, I don't see a bunch of second chance points.  With that said, put me down for
Kentucky minus the chalk AND Under the Total please.  Thanks!

What a shxty way that game finished for Under backers.  This is another reason why I think “Coach” Drew is an absolute idiot.  With that said, nice job Kentucky and Over backers!
