This will be a matchup of speed vs size! Kentucky is a big team, in fact hey are 5th in the nation in size and they definetly know how to use that to their advantage especially on defense. Wildcats' defense is ranked16th overall, 41st in field goal percentage defense, and fourth in block rate. Alabama will use their quickness and aggression on defense to counter the size advantage of Kentucky. This game will come down to how this young Kentucky squad is able to keep their composure against the frustrating defense of Alabama and how Alabama deals with the size of the UK in the paint. With Keion Brooks back in the lineup I see UK taking this one however it coudl come down to a last minute shot which is why I take the ML on UK!
