    I didn't watch the UC game, but it just scares me in general. Kemba Walker is one of the few guys with some star power that can garner some special treatment from officials. And, when you consider that he's good enough to legitimately get anyone in foul trouble, its a scary matchup for a team that goes one deep.

    I doubt we have much of a pill to swallow regardless of the outcome. Go Big Blue!
    You forgot to add wins over West Virginia and Notre Dame.

    How did they finish up in the Big East Rankings?

    It's not a Big East vs. SEC thing. It's UConn vs. UK.

    We are now having a typical Springtime in Kentucky.....The Cardinals are sitting on the fence watching the Cats play.

    Since the NCAA Tournament is a new season and UK & UConn are left wouldn't that make them the #1 from their Conference? They all play for one thing, so regular season is a mute point now. Ask the teams who won the BE and SEC regular season title if they would give it up to be where UK and UConn are now.

    I actually felt like Miller struggled with Barnes.

    I think that is way off. Barnes went scored 18 points on 7-19 from the floor and almost all of his makes came in transition or on very difficult shots. Lamb is a very good player but he isn't near the player that Barnes is. I would feel very comfortable with Miller on Lamb.

    Lamb is a much better shooter than Barnes too, though, and doesn't force shots the way Barnes does. Big difference.

    I'm not going to make any predictions on this game. Been wrong too many the past 2 weeks about UK. Hope to see a good one.

    Barnes can create a shot in the way that Lamb cannot, is four inches taller and can jump out of the gym. Lamb is a better shooter but Barnes is a much tougher guy to defend.

    I'll take 7 of 19 and 18 points from the opponents best player every game.

    I thought Miller struggled at times against Barnes, but he didn't do a bad job. Barnes has to be ones of the top 5 talents in college basketball IMO, he's going to get his. And not even a point per shot is more than making him work to get his.

    Everyone is going on and on like Kemba will score 30 no matter what. Maybe Kemba might just have an "off" night with his shooting? He's not a machine.
    If he does UConn is in a world of trouble.

    I've picked OSU/NC the last two games in reguarding to the theory I can't pick games, so again same reason.

    But to be honest this game worries me. UCONN is also playing very well and I don't like the matchups. Kemba is outstanding, Lamb is a key. The "revenge " factor might help again with the Cats. Thats all I'm gonna say about this.
