Kentucky Looks To Leave Atlanta With Victory Over Baylor, Final Four Ticket

Coming off the heels of a 102-90 victory over the Indiana Hoosiers, Kentucky finds themselves now just one game away from punching a ticket to New Orleans and the Final Four.

Baylor will likely be another team that will try to run the floor with the Wildcats, something few have been able to do as the team has a 35-2 record on the season.

Standing just 6'7", look for Kentucky to pound the ball inside against Baylor's Quincy Acy. Though he has been one of the star's of the tournament thus far, Acy is undersized as he tries to defend Anthony Davis.

Also look for the Wildcats to try and get Darius Miller off to a hot start offensively, as Baylor doesn't have nearly the size to match-up with Kentucky in the backcourt.

Defensively, Kentucky will have to not become so enamored with trying to stop Perry Jones III and Quincy Acy inside that they forget about Pierre Jackson and Brady Heslip. Heslip in particular can be a sharpshooter from outside.
