I would probably take Psycho T over Patterson right now. Stevenson will likely be starting over Harrellson also.
The bench no question is advantage UNC. Keep in mind that UNC will be able to run two top big men recruits out to keep Hansborough fresh. Davis and Zeller alone are better than most anybody on Kentucky's bench.
My hope is Kentucky keeps it close, but a little too much optimism to be calling on the Heels.
