Mar 20, 17, 12:54 AM #33It's going to be a good one & I'm hoping the late tip doesn't hurt how the Cats play. The Cats need to play with intensity and more consistent energy than they did in the first weekend of the Tournament. Our Defense is much improved at this point in the season which is great, Our offense will have to be good of course but our Defense will be the main point if we want to win, UCLA will take 20+ 3's, The Cats have to limit them below 40% from 3 if they want to limit the Offense..Also it would be nice if Monk had himself one of those nights.
Mar 20, 17, 09:09 AM #34Kentucky 80-75.
Mar 20, 17, 09:13 AM #35I think Kentucky is better defensively than they were at the start of the year. Of course UCLA is probably even better offensively. One thing I like about this game, as a UK fan, is that UCLA will run with Kentucky (where Kentucky is at their best) and not try to bog it down like so many SEC teams and Wichita State have done.
Mar 20, 17, 09:15 AM #36I have thought UCLA was the best team in the country all year. My mind has not changed. They win by 8-10

Mar 20, 17, 09:27 AM #38I'm curious what the spread will be.
Also wonder what % of the Arena will be Kentucky.
Mar 20, 17, 09:32 AM #39FWIW, fivethirtyeight has Kentucky with a 68% chance of victory. Only Kansas has better odds of making the Elite Eight (UNC also has 68%).

Mar 20, 17, 09:41 AM #41I picked the Bruins to cut down the nets, but I'm beginning to lean towards Kentucky in this one I think. They match up VERY well IMO against the Bruins.

This should be the best measure on how good of a coach Cal is. Will he be defeated by UCLA and Alford 3 times in a row?

Mar 20, 17, 10:16 AM #44UCLA was one of the teams I didn't want to see the Cats play in the tourney, the other just happened to be UNC.
If the Cats get out of this bracket they'll cut down the nets in Phoenix, but I also think either of the 3 teams (UNC,UCLA,UK) will be the National Champ.
Heart says Cats by 1+, head says Bruins by 7-8.
