On second thought, I think you may be right about Indiana. Only thing is, they do know HOW to beat Kentucky and they've been playing well lately.

Only play for me tomorrow night is KAN-8'.  They will crush NC ST.  If NC ST had a chance, the line would be closer to 5. 

Good luck!

Indiana been playing well??? You mean coming back from behind and LUCKY to beat VCU by 2 pts?

Indiana beat Kentucky cuz 1) they were at HOME 2) they got LUCKY 3) Anthony Davis was in FOUL TROUBLE 4) Terence Jones played the WORST game of his career 

And barely beat them by ONE point!

Do you really think Indiana has a shot in this game?

Plus, IN THAT GAME they had their Senior Verdell Jones....his leadership was noted in that game.

Kentucky by DD.

Before you get your panties all tied in a bunch let's reconsider a couple of those comments.

First, Indiana has won 7 of 8 including wins over Michigan State, Purdue and VCU.  How were they lucky against VCU?  Because they held VCU to three field goals the final 12:30?

Second, let's rewind to the first meeting between these two teams.  I'll help refresh your memory that IU held a 12 point lead with 10 minutes to play.  Here is a quote from their coach

"That game wasn't a buzzer-beater,'' he said Thursday. "We were down 12 late and we were lucky to even be in the game. We probably could have easily gotten beat by 20 . . . The score was not indicative of how bad they beat us.''

I love how people use the excuse of Davis in foul trouble as some reason why Kentucky lost.  Is that not part of the game?  It is strategy to get the other teams best player in foul trouble, especially a big like Davis.

Verdell off the bench does hurt.  He had 8 points and 5 turnovers that game.  Remy Abell has filled in admirably off the bench.  Let's also note that IU shot 43% in this game and on the season averages 48% from the field.  So it's not like they shot some "crazy" percentage to win the game.

It will be a very tough task for the Hoosiers to win tonight in Atlanta, but they do have a couple things in their favor.  First, they absolute zero pressure.  Nobody expected this team to be here and they have nothing to lose.  Second, they have beat Kentucky before and will not be intimidated like 90% of the teams that have played UK this year.

If I was you guys I'd forget all about that first meeting between Kentucky and Indiana.  Has no bearing on tonight's showdown.

Game was played 3 months ago.  Both teams have changed since then.

About the only thing I might take away from the first matchup is Kentucky has extra motivation to avenge one of their rare losses.

But then again as if they need any extra motivation playing in the sweet 16.

Any team can beat any other team on any given night.  Look at Mich. St. last night.  L'ville's offense was a joke, Mich. St. was just outplayed, Cards wanted it more and Sparty was lazy.

Do you think the Cats will be focused tonight?  Going to get one of their better efforts?  That is the stuff to keep in mind.  A focused Kentucky squad is one tough animal to deal with.

thats a key word----- i mean MSU was down with 5 mins left and they keep playing like they were up by 20, with no hurry no heart, no passion, KTY is on a mission, they crushed IowaSt, a game every body thought will be close, Baylor is rolling, Xavier has been plain lucky, a fluky call by the reffs Fucked a very lazy ND team, and then they caught lehigh in their 7th cloud, UNC with out marshall will be like a wounded beast, expect the team to come out giving a 300% effort, not ot mention the huge mismatch its for Ohio, the only inrtiguing game is NCST if UK comes out flat like against purdue this could be a head ache, if nt they can win by dd
