    With this loss by WVU, the best the Big East can hope for is 4 of their 11 entries making it to the Sweet 16, partially due to 4 Big East teams facing each other this weekend. But there is no doubt the Big East is by far the best basketball conference in the nation.

    ... and then he moved over to shut down Mitchell when he suddenly got hot. Good point. Great D by Liggins.

    Which one of OSU's shooters will they put him on?

    Not bad by the Cats. Jorts and Knight were great. Miller was off but had a BIG 3 late.

    If you take away the crappy end to the first half, this one wasn't that close.

    Start him on Diebler I would think- move him to whoever is facilitating on the perimeter if need be- Lighty or Buford.

    Might be a challenge to find a buyer Wireman.

    I don't believe OSU plays as physically tough as WVU although they are clearly more skilled. The OSU-UK matchup could really be entertaining if the teams play fluid basketball and get up and down. You don't see many game in the 80's any more much less the 90's. I would love to see one like that. This would give KY their best chance, I believe. Of course, all of this is predicated on OSU advancing.

    Jones did play better today, was more active on the boards.
    Knight was unbelievable today, maybe his best overall game as a Wildcat.
    Harrelleson was his usual.....hard work, hits the boards, plays good defense down low and scores/picks up the junk baskets. By far my favorite player on this team.
    Survive and Advance!!!

    On to the Sweet Sixteen........GO BIG BLUE!!

    Sully and Lauderdale are very physical in the paint, but they are more finesse on the perimeter. Craft is a physical defender that knows Knight pretty well from AAU events over the years...

    Bad matchup for UK all around w/ OSU.

    Nice win for the Cats, and especially the 2nd half execution--both offensively and defensively. And for as great as Knight was, I have to again tip my hat to Jorts. The guy has been HUGE for UK in the post-season. Whoodathunkit?

    Is that a noticeable trend by Huggins coached teams?

    That they can't score? Without question. If they get over 70 you are in trouble, they just don't get there all that often. Said to a buddy when they had 41 at half that it would end up being 2/3 of their offense for the game. Pretty close...
