As the NCAA Tournament rolls on, NBA teammates become temporary adversary when it comes to their college teams.
That’s the case in New Orleans, where Pelicans forward Anthony Davis thinks his Kentucky Wildcats will beat Jrue Holiday’s UCLA Bruins. Even though UCLA won the first matchup back in December, Davis is confident his Cats win the rematch.
In fact, he’s prediction a Kentucky win “by at least 12” over UCLA.

“It’s not going to be a hard game for us” Davis said of the matchup. “It’s going to be pretty easy for us. We’re going to win by at least 12. I think we’re locked in. We’ve got a lot better players.”
It’s great to see AD is confident that Kentucky wins the rematch, but he’s probably stretching the truth a bit saying it won’t be hard. The Selection Committee made sure nothing is coming easy for Kentucky.
