March Madness: Saturday Open Thread

Kentucky already took down West Virginia and their win is instructive for the casual Longhorn basketball fan who tries to use football analogues to gauge and predict future play.

Kentucky was lucky to beat a very average Princeton but they advanced and the Wildcat youngsters found their tournament legs. They blew the doors off of WVU in the 2nd half and are brimming with confidence before a likely showdown against Ohio State.

The most interesting stat in the UK box score isn't Knight's 30. It's Josh Harrelson's 15 and 8. They need him to come up big against Sullinger.
