In Myron Medcalf’s ‘The Floor is Yours’ segment on ESPN today, he gets asked if Kentucky can evolve into one of the scariest teams in the NCAA Tournament and win the SEC. His answer is one that we’ve heard all year. Yes and maybe.
As we saw on Saturday, if that Kentucky team shows up, or the one that played at Kansas or the one that dominated Duke, they can beat anyone in the country. Hell, they almost beat the No. 2 team in the country on the road. But, if the Auburn game team shows up, this team can lose to the likes of a Stony Brook in the Round of 64.
Medcalf does believe this team will eventually look more like the team that showed up against South Carolina because Kentucky has ‘the best pure point guard in America’ in Tyler Ulis and a born scorer in Jamal Murray. I like that title for Ulis.
