In my 94-feet feature at CoachCal.com, I take a look at what went wrong in Kentucky's December loss to Indiana, as well as examine the Kentucky-Indiana NCAA tourney history. In addition, I breakdown what the Cats have done right in this year's Big Dance. Here's an excerpt:
The Cats, led by the perpetually tenacious Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, have allowed their Big Dance opponents to shoot only 40.3 percent from the floor (50 of 124), while also tightening the perimeter D by limiting the opposition to an anemic 24.3 percent from long range (9 of 37).
Kentucky has owned the offensive glass in its first two tourney tests, allowing the opposition to grab only 22 offensive rebounds (29.7 percent). Overall, the Wildcats are a solid plus-18 in rebound margin and are snagging an exceptional 42.9 percent of their offensive rebound opportunities.
