    I don't think Kentucky will be quite on tonight, but they will still get them by 70 or so.

    ND has some good shooters, but they haven't faced a team this tall and/or defensively oppressive. They may be able to do some damage around the perimeter, but they can't handle our size inside and under the rim.

    I agree, may end up staying kind of close if they shoot well but I don't think it'll be enough.

    Congrats to Wisconsin on an impressive win. They were unconscious from the 3 point line. 10 of 12 as Dickie V would say "Are you kidding me".

    Looks like uk has their hands full. They need to get out of man to man. They're spreading them out to much and setting screens. Crowd the middle and make them shoot from the outside. ND is deff quicker and hustle more.

    No worries. Big blue "mericas team" will score 80 or 90 in the second half. My guys got this.

    I don't think you want them getting open shots outside.

    I like cynical sarcasm but you are trying too hard. Tone it back some and the humor will shine through as intended!

    No kidding. UK has been great on defense they are just atrocious on offense so far. Trey Lyles has 3-4 turnovers by himself. Play D the same way this next half and feed Towns down low and UK will win by 10. Continue to struggle on O and it will go to the wire.

    Normally I would agree but nd is out scoring them in the paint. That should not happen with uk size. Spreading them out is opening the middle to much. Size don't mean squat if the big guys are on the perimeter

    As much as I hate Kentucky I would love to see the Wisconsin - Kentucky game.

    I think that would be a better game. Uks offense is below par tonight. Can't even hit a free throw now. August is playing awesome

    Maybe pass the ball when you have three big guys running with you?

    Hats off to Kentucky. Can't wait to see them play Wisconsin.

    Kudos to the Irish. That was the toughest test we've had all year and to be honest we needed it. I watched ND in the ACC tournament and they are a great team and played great ball tonight. I hope going forward we take the next few days to focus on our weaknesses and prepare for the Badgers because they too are a class act team.

    My blood pressure is a little high at the moment....

    Wildcats win a squeaker. ND played a great game. UK made the plays at the end to win. I thought the most atrocious plays during the game was from the announcers. Where did these guys come from. They were just awful in my opinion. Chris Weber just needs to keep his mouth shut. I would much rather have Billy Packer which was always in the tank for the ACC than these clowns.

    ^^^x2. Irish played great. I thought they had em when the 2 min mark hit. Towns is going to need some help against Wisconsin.

    My emotions went for a roller coaster there for a minute... Aaron Harrison hit yet another big time three to go up and I thought the tides turned for UK... Then Grant answers with just as deep of a 3 and I thought it was the final dagger/omen proving it was just NDs night. UK got lucky to win against a great team playing so poorly. Karl Towns won that one single handedly
