When looking at how Louisville and Kentucky match-up with each other, it’s more important to look at which team will get more out of each position. With Louisville playing more of match-up zone than a man-to-man defense it’s not necessarily about 1-on-1 matchups.
The power forward position will be as evenly matched as any position on the floor tomorrow. Both teams will likely get a lot of production from the power forward spot. In my opinion, this is one of the positions where Louisville’s depth can be overwhelming.
–Chane Behanan, 10.7 ppg, 7.6 rpg.
–Montrezl Harrell, 6.7 ppg, 4.5 rpg.
–Alex Poythress, 14.5 ppg, 6.5 rpg.
–Kyle Wiltjer 11.4 ppg, 5.4 ppg.
Advantage: Slight Edge To Louisville
As much as it pains me to say it, Alex Poythress on his best day would probably be the best player on the court for both teams tomorrow. Chane Behanan had very high expectations heading into this season and right now is a better college player than Poythress, in my opinion....
