Re: University of Kentucky Men's Basketball - 6th edition
Right now, the only teams Kentucky should be hesitant to face are Ohio State, Purdue, UNC, KU, and any team with a top-flight big man. Everyone else is about even, depending on draw, officiating, and venue.
I'd love to see a Duke/ UK match-up in the Sweet 16. It would be fun to watch, as the teams are remarkably similar in terms of how they play the game. (Outside-in, with questionable team basketball IQ, but talent across the starting five plus one.)
That said, I think Kentucky will be lucky to go past the round of 32. Youth showed this year, as it typically does.
If Kentucky goes West in the BYU (1)/San Diego State (2) Arizona/ UCLA (3) bracket, they might make a serious run. None of those guys has faced the pressure cooker that is March Madness as favorites. Kentucky faces that issue virtually every game and should be used to it.
