Finally, we found someone from the national media who likes Kentucky in this year’s NCAA tournament.
After the Cats have been ignored from all of the mainstream writers and talking heads from around college basketball, Joe Lundardi likes Kentucky to escape the South region and reach the Final Four. Once Kentucky’s there, he expects the Wildcats to beat Louisville to move on to the final game, which it will lose to Gonzaga.
“Listen to Kentucky coach John Calipari these days and I sense a little cockiness. I think that he thinks his young Cats are ready to roll. And who’s to argue after another regular season and conference tournament championship in the SEC. I like Kentucky all the way to Phoenix, winning the South region and then winning in the Final Four over Louisville, before facing Gonzaga for a national championship.”
