NCAA Tournament Davidson vs. Kentucky: Preview and Prediction

Not happening here: Kentucky stops Buffalo cold, 95-75

The Wildcats (25-10) and Bulls (27-8) tip off at 5:15 PM ET on CBS. The pair combined to score 44 points and go 18 of 21 from the line.

The last time Kentucky went a game without making a three was on November 26, 1988, when the Cats suffered a three-point loss in the Great Alaska Shootout.

Kentucky could still lose to Buffalo Saturday but what many were saying the toughest bracket in the country is not almost as hard on paper for United Kingdom now. "Others need 12, 13 or 14 to win". The way they played in the first half, I thought defensively, to play a team that's as efficient and an execution team like Davidson, this young team did pretty good.

Buffalo coach Nate Oats hasn't backed away from the challenge of beating a higher-seeded team for the second time in two games. "We contested their shots well". "We're learning game-to-game now".

The Bulls are fast, play up-tempo and shoot the 3 - areas the Wildcats have struggled against.

The Bulls had won six straight games before demolishing Arizona 89-68 Thursday. With AP Photos.Kentucky topped Davidson 78-73 in the NCAA tournament despite failing to make a single 3-pointer. Arizona was an even more popular pick at +1300, while Buffalo was seen as a massive longshot at 1000-1.

Freshman Kellan Grady chipped in 16 points and two assists for Davidson.

The fifth-seeded Wildcats (25-10) led by 10 after an impressive defensive showing in the first half, but No. 12 Davidson fought back with its potent offense to tie the game at 54 with seven minutes remaining.

Loyola 64, Miami 62 • Donte Ingram picked the ideal spot for this game-winning shot.

Ingram hit a 3-pointer from the March Madness logo just before the buzzer, Loyola-Chicago over Miami.

"We wasn't trying to get into a three-point shootout with them, so we tried to make it more of a different type of game than that, tried to get to the rim", Gabriel said.

When Davidson needed them late, its three-point looks were off. The Bulls are trying to become the first MAC school to reach the Sweet 16 since OH in 2012.

With the Tennessee coach back in familiar territory, Admiral Schofield had 15 points and 12 rebounds as the Volunteers opened their first NCAA under Barnes with a win in Dallas.

"Right now, I just don't think it's in his interests or ours unless he's 100 percent", Calipari said.

The 5 seed Wildcats' tournament hopes were in question following a four-game losing streak, but a February 17 win over Alabama helped turn the season around.

"I didn't know that at all", Knox said about the end of the streak. And then you can't miss them bad because they're demoralizing. They do a lot of good things. They are deep and they are able to play whatever style you want.
