Posted March 24, 2012 on AP on Fox
Baylor dunked its way into the NCAA South Regional final. Kentucky is waiting with the nation's most imposing deterrent to the Bears' hopes for another dunkfest Sunday. Quincy Acy had four of Baylor's seven jams in a 75-70 regional semifinal win over Xavier on Friday night. The highlight was his one-handed slam over 7-footer Kenny Frease on an alley-oop pass. The play found an immediate home on YouTube. The next test is tougher. Kentucky's 6-foot-10 Anthony Davis leads the nation with 169 blocked shots. The Wildcats' total of 317 rejections also leads the nation, according to STATS LLC. Clearly, Baylor's path to the basket - and to the Final Four - won't be easy. Acy says he has faced other great shot blockers and ''can't shy away'' from Davis.
