Some thoughts...

You know how the media said we would be facing UConn, Indiana, and Duke on the way to a Final Four? Two of three aren't happening.

I'm looking forward to the rematch against Indiana. Just like in 1996, we'll avenge the sole loss of the regular season with a win. It's not exactly the same Indiana team with Verdell Jones III out for the season.

Kentucky put on a show tonight. The game was tied 42 all before Kentucky went on a 34-10 tear. Three pointers were going down like crazy...for Kentucky. However, for Iowa State, that was not the case. The Cyclones finished the evening shooting 13.6% from outside with only 3 out of 22 shots going in from outside the arc.

Kentucky sure loves to play in Louisville though. Saturday night, the Cats hit 50% of their 20 attempts from outside. Doron Lamb hit 5, Darius Miller hit 3, and both Marquis Teague and Kyle Wiltjer had a shot a piece go in for 3.

My hat's off to Marquis Teague. Teague finished the game with 24 points, 4 rebounds, 7 assists, and 1 steal.

Three Kentucky starters finished the night with double digit scoring: Marquis Teague, 24; Darius Miller, 19; Doron Lamb, 16; Anthony Davis, 15.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Terrence Jones will need to play like the All-Americans that they are when it comes to the rematch against Indiana. That will be one of the keys to the game. That and keeping Davis out of foul trouble.
