It's important to get that live stream because Kentucky-Indiana is the most highly anticipated game of the night. The two teams met in early December when Indiana won on a last-second buzzer beater by Christian Watford. Kentucky has used it as a source of motivation all year and has been anxious to getting a shot at revenge.
Indiana pulled off the upset in the first meeting, but Kentucky is a vastly different team from when the two teams first met. Star freshman Anthony Davis struggled mightily against Indiana in the first meeting scoring only six points and dealing with foul trouble all game. Since then he has emerged as the nation's best player and is expected to be drafted with the first overall pick in this year's NBA Draft.
Davis along with Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Terrence Jones make up one of the most imposing, athletic frontcourts in the nation. Jones is another player that struggled against Indiana on Dec. 10th, but has stepped up his game of late.
But most importantly for the Wildcats is that point guard Marquis Teague has improved exponentially since December. Teague started off the season as a talented scorer, but was often times out of control and turnover prone. He has been absolutely fantastic in the NCAA Tournament thus far, especially 24 points, seven assists, two turnover performance against Iowa State in the Round of 32. Teague is finally playing within the pace of the game and no longer looks like the glaring weak spot in a lineup filled with future NBA stars.
Kentucky isn't the only team to have improved though. Indiana had its share of ups and downs after the Kentucky upset - mostly due to injuries - but entered the tournament on a high note. It won eight out of its last 10 games entering March Madness, including a big win over then No. 5 Michigan State, and has come together in ways that few expected in the beginning of the season.
I feel like we're playing with a lot more confidence than we were playing with back then, junior forward Christian Watford, who hit the game-winning shot against the Wildcats, told reporters this week.
Watford is the team's leading scorer, but freshman Cody Zeller could be the biggest key for the Hoosiers. Zeller averaged 15.5 points per game and 6.5 rebounds per game on the season and will have to defensively check one of Kentucky's many talented big men. Zeller has shown that he is more than capable of shutting down Kentucky, but it will be quite the task to stop John Calipari's three-headed monster.
The Wildcats are the clear favorite to win the NCAA Tournament and view anything less than cutting down the nets in New Orleans as a major disappointment. Indiana has a very strong team, but look for Kentucky's talent to be too much on this Friday night primetime game.
