Baylor basketball coach Scott Drew got a painful, up-close look at the Kentucky Wildcats yesterday. After his team was given an 82-70 heave-ho from the NCAA tourney — in a game that really wasn’t really that close – the coach was asked about UK’s potential for winning the national crown:
“I don’t think anybody wants to play Kentucky, right now. (Louisville is) probably more familiar with them, but Kentucky is the best team in college basketball, right now…
I think if Kentucky plays their best basketball nobody’s going to beat them. If Kentucky doesn’t have a good night, anybody can beat anybody for one game.”
Drew is correct. See: Chaminade versus Virginia, NC State versus Houston, Villanova versus Georgetown or Norfolk State/Missouri or Duke/Lehigh this season.
But at this point — or “right now” as Drew put it — it does appear that the only way Kentucky goes down is if the Wildcats are hit with an “on any given day” type of historical upset. They appear to be that good. And after the loss to Vanderbilt in the SEC Tournament finals, they appear to be that focused, too.
