Top-seeded Kentucky got a scare when freshman star Anthony Davis went down with an injured left knee in the South Regional final against Baylor.
The Wildcats were cruising along with a big lead Sunday when Davis banged knees with Baylor's Perry Jones III on a drive to the basket early in the second half.
Davis, who leads the nation in blocked shots, stayed down along the baseline, holding his knee and writhing in pain. He finally got up and limped to the bench, where the knee was stretched out and rubbed with an ointment by a trainer.
Kentucky fans held their breath - then let out of a big cheer when Davis checked back into the game, having been out for only a couple of minutes.

John Calipari knows he isn’t a movie critic but when he was asked on Saturday to give an opinion on a movie he saw with his team on Thursday, he gave his honest opinion: it was “awful.”
The culprit the evidently stunk up the movie theater? “21 Jump Street,” the Jonah Hill-Channing Tatum big screen comedy adaptation of the late 80′s, early 90′s network TV show. While...

Thoughts on a 102-90 loss to the Wildcats:
The road ends here in Atlanta, the Hoosiers running out of gas against a matured and supremely talented Kentucky squad that was just too much.
But what a way to finish, what a way to go down swinging. This game was the height of college basketball entertainment; two storied programs with top five offenses in the country putting on a show...
