Kentucky Vs. Baylor Final Score: Wildcats Easily Defeat Bears 82-70, Advance To Final Four

Outside of the first few minutes in the first half the Kentucky Wildcats were never presented a challenge against the Baylor Bears. Kentucky went on a 16-0 run in the middle of the first half to go up 21-10 and then led 42-22 at the half, and ultimately winning 82-70.

In the second half Baylor chipped away at the Kentucky, but the closest they would get would be 10 points with under one minute left in the game. Baylor did get 22 points and eight rebounds from Quincy Acy, but it was not enough to keep them in this game.

The Kentucky offense was making their shots this afternoon by connecting on 54 percent of their shots, and they were aggressive by making to the free throw line 44 times while making 30 of them. Kentucky had four players in double figures and of course were led by Anthony Davis who scored18 points, 11 rebounds and six block shots.

Oh, and Davis also had this amazing put back:

Kentucky now moves on to face their in-state rival Louisville Cardinal in the Final Four and for a chance to play for a national title.
