NCAA Rapid Reaction: Kentucky's size too much for UB, 95-75

NCAA Rapid Reaction: Kentucky's size too much for UB, 95-75

It was a frantic pace early with United Kingdom starting the scoring on a Hamidou Diallo steal and slam. Since 2002 this will be their eight appearance with the best result in 2008 when they reached elite eight. Kevin Knox was 4-of-5 himself for 8 points, but he picked up his 3rd foul with just under 4 minutes left in the first half. Down 50-56, prompting Kentucky timeout.

United Kingdom scored 26 of its 34 first-half points in the lane.

Down ten at halftime, Davidson fought back.

UB could not stop Kentucky's 6-foot-6 point guard, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander from getting to the rim. However, Gudmundsson hit another three to tie the game at 52.

He has been a very popular pick for T20 franchises across the world, stepping out exactly 200 times and scoring 5695 runs. He was equally effective in the One-day global arena, scoring 4440 runs in 136 outings at an impressive 47.28.

Plus, I learned my lesson in 2011 and 2014 with the improbable Final Four runs Kentucky had not to doubt Calipari. Reigel would follow the missed shot with a foul in the backcourt. Kevin Knox hit a baseline jumper for a 46-41 United Kingdom advantage.

Kevin Knox led the way with 25 points on 8-of-16 shooting, while fellow freshman Shai Gilgeous-Alexander filled the stat sheet with 19 points, eight rebounds, and seven assists. "They average 30 3-point shots a game".

The Buffalo Bulls pulled off the tournament's first big - but not biggest - shocker when they took down four seed Arizona 89-68 in a massive blowout. He went 9 for 11 from the free-throw line, but also 0 for 3 from 3-point range. He lived off the baseline jumper off the flex screen. Knox hit two free throws and then a baseline jumper to put United Kingdom in the lead, 65-59.

Anytime Buffalo seemed like it might turn the tide and get out ahead of Kentucky, Gilgeous-Alexander was there to hit a clutch shot. "But what they should have learned is, if you come out and play how we did in the second half, our season will be over".

The South Korean made it seven goals in his last four games with his brace against Bournemouth on the weekend. The Spaniard will need to be ruthless against the Welsh outfit, if Spurs are to go through to the last four.

The game against Florida was the only time in the last eight games Kentucky did not share the basketball.

Davidson took out St. Bonaventure and nationally ranked Rhode Island on the way to the Atlantic 10 tournament championship.

And why, despite winning the SEC Tournament last week, Calipari is the first to admit he has no idea what to expect when the NCAA Tournament kicks off Thursday. Their length forced the usually efficient Grady into a 4-14 shooting night, including 1-5 from the three-point line.
