BEST INDIVIDUAL MATCHUP

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist vs. Tyshawn Taylor

X-FACTORS

Terrence Jones (Kentucky), Jeff Withey (Kansas)

THE SKINNY

This feels more like a coronation for the Wildcats than a battle for the National Championship. Kansas has become a terrific defensive team and Withey has blossomed during the second half of the season but Kentucky is just bigger, stronger, and more talented at just about every position.

It would take a masterful game for Kansas to pull the upset — it says here they won’t.

PREDICTION

KENTUCKY 77, KANSAS 66
