    I can't imagine this is going to be very close.

    I am just glad that this is not a game of Jeopardy or an Academic Challenge.
    Since it's basketball I pick U.K.
    U.K. 74
    Princeton 57

    Only way imo is if Princeton can take care of the ball, stay fairly close especially early and U.K.'s young team gets frustrated and starts making turnovers. The longer that U.K. lets Princeton hang around and believe they can play with the Cats the more confidence the play with the Cats.
    Put them away early and keep the foot on the gas.

    Darius should at least have 20 points. Very few teams in the SEC had players that could match up with him, so I do not see how Princeton would have a player that could match his size/quickness/athletic ability. Cal should be able to post him up all day.

    I was very worried that they would get the earliest of games on Thursday, thankfully they aren't suiting up til 2:45. I took off work at 1:30.

    Cats should win easily, but you never know in March.

    The only previous game I can recall between these two was 1977 in the East Regional. The Cats won 72-58 behind Rick Robey's 20 points. Here's the box score: http://www.bigbluehistory.net/bb/Sta...Princeton.html

    According to the site UK is 2-1 vs. Princeton and actually lost to them in 1926 by a score of 30-26.

    Does Princeton still run the Princeton offense?

    Assuming they do it could be a frustrating match-up for UK's youth. But, UK's freshman are a pretty heady group themselves. I still remember watching the upset UCLA in '96.

    Probably less on this team IMO than say last year's. We played our own version of "slow down-deliberate" this weekend.
