Kentucky is simply licking their chops now that Kansas is out of the NCAA Tournament and they are facing a double digit seed. This young Wildcats team is certainly full of confidence, so it's up to Coach Calipari to keep them grounded. Kentucky has won both of their NCAA Tournament games by a combined 59 PTS so far, easily the most dominating team thus far in the tournament. The Wildcats have won their past 7 games SU to stand at 34-2 SU overall this season. Kentucky has been ranked in the top 3 nearly all season in various national polls. The Wildcats are 15-2 SU and 11-6 ATS away from home this season, including a perfect 8-0 SU in neutral court settings. Kentucky is 10-5 ATS as a single digit favorite this season. The Wildcats are 9-6 ATS in non-conference games this season. After starting off the season losing back to back games ATS, the Wildcats didn't lose consecutive games ATS the rest of the season. Kentucky is averaging

95 PPG during the NCAA Tournament, after averaging 80 PPG all season long. PG John Wall leads the Wildcats with 16.8 PPG and 6.5 APG, both team highs this season.

Kentucky is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 NCAA Tournament games as the listed favorite. The over is 7-1 in the Wildcats last 8 non-conference games. Kentucky has been healthy all season long, which is quite rare considering how young this team is. The Wildcats don't have a single player listed on the their injury report.

There simply isn't a better story in CBB, as Cornell is playing the role of Cinderella this year. Cornell has already beaten both Temple and Wisconsin, both of which were considered top 20 teams in the nation. It's been 31 years since an Ivy League team has made it this far in the NCAA Tournament. Cornell is 29-4 SU and 18-10 ATS overall this season. The Big Red dominated Ivy League play, going 13-1 SU. Most critics believe the Big Red haven't played a tough schedule this year, but those same critics fail to remember they've played two #1 seeds in Kansas and Syracuse. Cornell is 18-3 SU and 14-5 ATS away from home this season, including a perfect 6-0 SU in neutral court scenarios. The Big Red is 6-1 ATS as the listed underdog, with their lone ATS loss coming by 2 PTS to Syracuse. Cornell won 5 of those 7 games SU as the listed underdog, losing only to Kansas and Syracuse.
