The Kentucky Wildcats are led by Anthony Davis, a 6'10 freshman who is considered a favorite to be selected as the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft. Davis is averaging 14.3 points and 10 rebounds per game.
Guard Doron Lamb and forward Terrence Jones are also key contributors for the Wildcats, who finished the regular season with the No. 1 ranking in the AP and ESPN/USA Today polls.
Head coach John Calipari's squad had their 24-game winning streak snapped by Vanderbilt on Sunday, but are still considered among the favorites to win the title.
Western Kentucky made the tournament with the help of a pair of freshmen. Guard Derrick Gordon and forward George Fant finished as the top scorers and rebounders for the Hilltoppers this season.
PREDICTION: The Wildcats will jump out to an early lead and never look back. Kentucky is just too big and athletic and should run away with this victory. Don't expect a blowout of epic proportions as the Hilltoppers have fight in them. Western Kentucky gave Louisville a scare this season, and held their own with Murray State.
PREDICTED SCORE: Kentucky over Western Kentucky, 75-58
