If you somehow missed any of the games this weekend, you missed quite a bit. The box scores do not do these games justice. Especially in the Kentucky game. Baylor went up 10-5 right out of the gate, but that was short lived as the Wildcats came back and exploded for 16 straight points. The final score was 82-70, but it was much more lopsided than that. Kentucky is going to be a tough team to beat. Anthony Davis is going to be the #1 pick, and for good reason. He played amazing once again with 18 points, 11 rebounds, and 6 blocks. He even played when the game was a lock at the game, risking injury. This team looks amazing day in and day out. They will take on Louisville who they already beat by 7 points on New Year’s Eve. I think this should be an easy win for Kentucky but you never know with Rick Patino on the other side of the court, he just needs to come up with a game plan to shut down 4 of the best players in the league. Easier said than done.
Kansas is tough as well, with most likely a #2 pick Thomas Robinson scoring 18 points and Tyshawn Taylor dropping 22 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists, and 5 steals. They were able to take down the Tarheels with a strong finish to the 2nd half. They will take on Ohio State who is led by Jared Sullinger, coming off a big game against Syracuse. He has 19 points while grabbing 7 boards. I picked Ohio State to win last year but I think that Kansas will take this one.
