The top overall seed Kentucky Wildcats lost to the Indiana Hoosiers earlier this year on an iconic Christian Watford three pointer, but this video says they won’t let it happen again. We’ll see tomorrow night.
Check out this “300″ movie spoof featuring Anthony Davis as King Leonidas telling (Davis is much more articulate here than in real life) the Hoosiers that he is out for revenge for the previous loss. At Coach Cal’s command, Davis finishes off Watford and the Hoosiers to avenge the first game.
Ashley Judd also makes an appearance in this clip, because ”This is UK!” She has to.

BEST OF MAXIM
Christian Watford has seen the replay of his buzzer-beating shot dozens of times over the past four months.
Like other big moments in Hoosiers history - the five national championships, the undefeated season, Keith Smart's winner in the 1987 title game - the image of Watford knocking down a 3-pointer in front of his own bench to beat No. 1 Kentucky 73-72 is one of those moments...
Indiana coach Tom Crean along with Jordan Hulls, Christian Watford and Cody Zeller met with the media on Thursday at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta to preview Friday’s South regional semifinal with Kentucky. The complete transcript of that availability follows:
THE MODERATOR: We’re joined by Indiana coach Tom Crean. We’ll start with an opening statement and then open it up for...
Anthony Davis had a rather quiet night. No worries. He's got plenty of help at Kentucky.
The top-seeded Wildcats took care of the team that beat them back in early December and are off to another regional final, putting all their weapons on display in a 102-90 victory over gritty Indiana on Friday night.
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist scored 24 points and four other players were in...
ATLANTA (AP) -- Michael Kidd-Gilchrist scored 24 points and Kentucky shook off a quiet night by freshman star Anthony Davis, pulling away from Indiana in a showdown of storied programs for a 102-90 victory Friday in the South Regional semifinals.
Davis wasn't a huge factor after picking up two early fouls, but the top-seeded Wildcats (35-2) had five other players in double figures...
March Madness gave the Georgia Dome a classic.
It wasnt the traditional classic with teammates piling on top of Bryce Drew, but it was one that provided consistently high-quality, fast-paced action with storylines to spare.
And in the end, Kentucky walked away with sweet revenge. The final score read 102-90. Coach John Caliparis face read: Thank goodness we dont have to play them...
You may recall Kentucky hoops losing to Indiana earlier in the year thanks to Christian Watford’s dramatic buzzer-beater three. The Wildcats and Hoosiers happen to meet again in a huge Sweet Sixteen matchup Friday night.
The 300 inspired video is pretty cheesy, but worth a laugh. The star-studded Spartan cast includes Anthony Davis, Christian Watford, John Calipari, and of course...
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...
Whenever December’s Indiana- Kentucky game comes up, everybody talks about Christian Watford’s buzzer-beating shot.
It was the way the game ended, and it’s only natural to remember what happened last. Plus, ESPN has shown the replay of the shot countless times ever since, making it nearly impossible for anyone to forget it.
The Wildcats certainly haven’t.
“We see it a lot...
Tom Crean and John Calipari have talked this week about how the first game between Indiana and Kentucky on Dec. 10 seems like it was a season ago.
While the replay of Christian Watford’s game-winning shot still pops up on ESPN commercials, the evolution of both teams since that game suggests Friday’s meeting will feature a pair of vastly improved clubs.
“The game was so long...
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...
I’m not really sure I know how to even adequately express the emotion I want to express, but it’s been nagging at me the last few days, and I can’t concentrate on any real work duties anyway…so I’m going to give it a try.
I can’t remember the last sporting event I wanted my team to win as badly as I want Indiana to beat Kentucky tonight. This may seem like a relatively...
