Wichita State Coach's Wife Escorted From Arena After Loss To Kentucky

Per our rankings, Kentucky is the nation's fourth-best team while Wichita State sits ninth. The Shockers were not shy about saying it either. Bankers Life Fieldhouse is the home arena for the Pacers. But all three came up big when it counted as Kentucky held on down the stretch for a 65-62 victory. The Wildcats get the victor of UCLA and Cincinnati. Those jobs include IN and North Carolina.

Kentucky's next game at FedEx Forum in Memphis will be John Calipari's first game there since leaving Memphis after the '09 season.

And the game is in Memphis, where Calipari coached for nearly a decade. No doubt, the Shockers have had enough of the Wildcats. He had to avoid Hawkins to get into the play, because colliding with him might have created a foul and it certainly would have impeded a block attempt.

There were many plays to recognize.

Kentucky freshman forward Bam Adebayo had his second consecutive double-double with 13 points and 10 rebounds against Wichita State.

"I just go out there and play basketball", Adebayo said. "I don't know. That's up to you guys". Kentucky showed as much collective toughness as the Wildcats have shown all season.

For four minutes, most of the country knew Shamet's name. They limited the Shockers to five points off turnovers. Team Rebounds: 3. Team Turnovers: 11 (0 PTS). Malik Monk blocked a shot and made two free throws in the final 13 seconds.

Malik Monk didn't break completely out of his shooting slump, but he hit two very large 3-pointers for the 'Cats in the three-point victory. "Monk and Fox are really good".

He drove and flicked Ashwin for three boundaries in an over. "But the hardness of the ball in the middle session was a factor". Handscomb looked solid in his unbeaten 44 from 115 balls (3x4), while Marsh was equally resolute in his 127-ball 38.

The European Parliament also wants a say, and will have to approve the final deal between Britain and the bloc. By formally notifying the European Union of the UK's plans to leave, the process for Brexit can begin.

"They played great defense", McDuffie said. "We knew they were going to shoot a three".

"My man was setting a back screen for Zay's (Isaiah Briscoe) man so I told Zay to twirl and then I guess they couldn't get open", Adebayo said. "Haven't seen him for awhile".

Kentucky guard De'Aaron Fox is blazing fast and he turned on the jets for big baskets twice in the second half.

Lynn Marshall doesn't come away from this looking good. After turning it over six times on Friday, Fox turned it over just twice in 31 minutes on Sunday.

Junior college recruiting hasn't typically been a major focus at IN, but if Marshall were to get the job, it is very likely that he would continue to try and mine the talent at that level IN order to keep an older roster with more physically mature kids.

After going scoreless in the first half, Willis found his shot in the second. The Shockers and Wildcats were different, playing a vast majority of the game within one score of each other and keeping the game unpredictable until the finish. With time almost expired, Hawkins saw that Shamet was preparing to shoot, but Shamet executed a pump-fake that got Hawkins into the air - and Hawkins contorted his body so that he did not crash into Hawkins while landing. He kept Willis in the game. The ANE analysis indicates a Kentucky win by 1 point, 74-73 at apace of 73 possessions. Back in 2014, unbeaten and top-seeded Wichita State lost to 8 seed Kentucky, 78-76, in a classic March Madness battle.

"Think of that", Calipari said.

"Kentucky has two National Basketball Association guards that really know how to play". "I will give them that".
