Question Of The Day: Can Anyone Stop Kentucky In The Final Four?

03.26.12 6 years ago 19 Comments

This was not a good year for Cinderella. Although only one number one seed will be invited to New Orleans for the Final Four, every team present is a major name – Kentucky, Ohio State, Kansas, and Louisville. Fans of teams outside of the midwest-flavored field won’t be able to cling to an underdog media darling like VCU or Butler; the games will be more akin to a clash of the titans than David vs. Goliath.

That all said, a rather noticeable gap exists between Kentucky and everyone else. John Calipari has assembled one of the most talented squads in recent memory, one that could feature as many as five future first-rounders. The biggest difference between this year’s squad and the John Wall-Demarcus Cousins iteration is evident in Anthony Davis’s no-nonsesne personality. While Wall’s squad featured a handful of colorful personalities, Davis, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Terrance Jones (who excels in so many ways) all play in a much more professional matter. Even if Davis is dinged up next weekend (a real possibility), it shouldn’t matter. Kentucky is the most talented team (and current odds on favorite, according to Vegas), and, if logic dictates, should be left cutting down the nets. Which leads us to our question of the day…

Do any of the other squads have a shot at stopping the Wildcats?
