Kentucky began their tournament my stomping on the No. 16 seed, Hampton, and then moved on to a round of 32 win over Cincinnati. So far, their best game was in the Sweet 16 where they absolutely crushed the No. 5 seed, West Virginia. They held the Mountaineers to just 39 points. The Kentucky defense has been the best in the nation all year long and it came up big for them against Notre Dame in the Elite Eight. They trailed the Fighting Irish by six in the second half but their defense stepped up down the stretch and they were able to escape that game with a narrow victory. That same level of defensive prowess is going to have be displayed against Wisconsin, who have been shooting the ball lights out all tournament long.
One of the matchups to watch will be the Wildcats’ Willie Cauley-Stein, the nations best defender, against Wisconsin’s Frank Kaminsky. Kaminsky can shoot the three ball extremely well and is a monster in the paint. Meanwhile, Cauley-Stein has demonstrated the ability to guard smaller players on the perimeter as well as big men inside. Kentucky has been the best all year at shutting down opponent’s shooters. And Wisconsin has been the best shooting team in the country. All five players for the Badgers can shoot the three, making them tough to shut down. Sam Dekker has averaged 21.8 points per game in the tournament as well as 5.5 rebounds per game. If Dekker and the Badgers have a good shooting night, it will be tough for Kentucky to score enough points to shut them down. These games really comes down to how well Kentucky’s defense can guard the perimeter and minimize the damage that Wisconsin does from beyond the arc.
