Kentucky Odds to Win the 2011 NCAA Championship

Kentucky odds to win the 2011 NCAA Championship were set at 12/1 or +1200 at Bookmaker.com.  Coming into the Tournament they were at 20/1 odds.

Kentucky, which nearly got knocked out of the first round, managed an impressive win over West Virginia on Saturday.  

Brandon Knight led the Wildcats making six free throws to seal the 71-63 victory in that game.

"Definitely for me I feel a lot more anxiety, especially coming into today's game, not playing so well [Thursday]. But just playing these type of games where you know if you lose your season is done, I think guys really come out and they fight a lot harder, they go after rebounds a lot tougher," Knight said.

"It kind of changes the game," the 6-foot-3 guard added. "Guys play tough throughout the season, but I think they step it up a notch in the tournament."

Just how good is Brandon Knight?

Only five other freshmen before him have had 30-point performances in an NCAA Tournament.

This will be the third time Kentucky has played a number one seed in the Sweet 16. The two previous times Kentucky lost by double-digits.
