Dick Vitale Predicts Kentucky Over Baylor To Advance To Final Four

The Kentucky Wildcats are just one win away from heading to the Final Four when they take on No. 2 seed Baylor Bears on Sunday afternoon. Kentucky takes on a Baylor team that has been on a roll and is playing some of their best basketball going back to their run in the Big 12 tournament.

Kentucky also has been playing well and has not been challenged during the NCAA Tournament with the exception of Friday night's game against the Indiana Hoosiers where the game was relatively close in the 102-90 win. However, one key edge that Kentucky has over Baylor is their bench play.

ESPN's Dick Vitale predicts Kentucky will move on and says that the difference in the game will be Kentucky's depth:

Scott Drew's team has the athletes to give Kentucky a battle, but one key could be Darius Miller off the bench. Look for big things from Doron Lamb and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, who starred against Indiana.
