With an assist from KenPom, here’s a look at where the Wildcats stack up on both sides of the ball:
With the way this team has been running over teams with dunks in the tournament so far, these numbers shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. Kentucky’s adjusted offensive efficiency (121.8 points per 100 possessions) ranks second in the country to Mizzou (125.5), who was bounced out of the first round of the tournament by Norfolk Sate. The Wildcats are also strong in the four factors. They rank 13th in eFG% (53.8), 20th in TO% (17.1), 19th in OR% (37.9) and 73rd in free throw rate (40.1).
It’s a multi-faceted attack. Anthony Davis has improved his offensive repertoire since these teams first met, and can no longer be considered just a threat on the interior. Terrence Jones, whose size and power can intimate, likely isn’t going to disappear in this one like he did in Bloomington. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist has a motor like few else in the country. Doron Lamb and Kyle Wiltjer can sh...

Their balance forces opponents to pick which player to try and stop and who to make beat them.
Kentucky coach John Calipari has a pretty good idea what counterpart Tom Crean will try when Indiana (27-8) meets the Wildcats (34-2) on Friday in the South Regional semifinals in Atlanta.
Dynamic Kentucky freshman forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist responded on social media to the reports he would enter the NBA draft at the end of the season. “I don’t know where this is coming from.

At Kentucky, the bar is set a lot higher than most places.
National championship or bust.
On Friday night, the Wildcats will be matched in an NCAA regional semifinal against one of the few college basketball programs that can give them a run when it comes to passion and tradition. Kentucky has Adolph Rupp. Indiana counters with Bob Knight. Few fans get as worked up about the game...
Typically, the type of antics that you see in the photo above are reserved for Tobacco Road. Between the big North Carolina basketball schools like UNC, NC State, Duke, and Wake Forest, fans and students are always pulling pranks on one another.
