    This thread is high comedy.

    This game will be determined in two places:
    * Davidson's three-point line. They are one of the best perimeter shooting teams in America facing off with one of the best perimeter defending teams in America. If Davidson shoots 35%+ from the arc, they are in the game.

    * The glass. Can Davidson keep UK off the offensive glass and limit 2nd and 3rd chances for the Cats? UK gets 35% of their misses back, one of the best percentages in America; Davidson only let's their opponents get 23% of their misses back, also, one of the best percentages in the country.

    Two teams whose strengths match up with something their opponent does a nice of defending. Davidson actually has decent size for a non power conference team, but they have very little depth.

    I fully expect UK to win the game, but these running-clock / 30 / No chance / as many as they want predictions are over-the-top. This will be a game, and if Davidson can create and knock-down open looks from deep, it will keep all of you very interested late into the contest.

    If Davidson had Steph tonight would that be an automatic win? I love imagining these kinds of scenarios...

    Enjoy the NCAA ride Cats fans! (now my team gets bumped to ESPN2, lol!)

    Only if Davidson is down by 2 with 1.8 seconds left in the game and Curry has the ball somewhere near mid court.
