The Kentucky Wildcats were ranked number one in the nation at the beginning of the season despite their youthful roster, and now they face the Kansas State Wildcats as an eight seed versus ninth seed. The all Wildcats NCAA Tournament basketball game should be a tight one when we watch Kentucky at Kansas State online free live streaming on CBS Sports tonight.
KSU started the season as the top team with a starting five consisting entirely of freshman players. The older players on the bench have tallied only 10 total minutes of NCAA Tournament minutes between them, basically making the entire Kentucky Wildcats squad rookies to the big March Madness 2014 stage.
Historically speaking youth is a good thing to have in the NCAA Tournament. Kentucky should feel good about having the youngest team in the field of 64 in knowing that last year’s youngest team, Michigan, finished second, and the year before, Kentucky fielded all youngsters and won the National Championship.
Kansas State (9) enters the NCAA Tournament with no expectations and a lot to prove. They lost most of their top players last season and entered this season with a lot of question marks. Many thought they wouldn’t even make March Madness, but not only did they manage to, they’ve done so with a middle seed.
Physical play is how Kansas State handles its opponents while Kentucky is more athletic and moves the ball around. These two teams are quite opposite one another, and they haven’t played one another since the 1951 championship game in which Kentucky won by 10 points.
Kentucky is the favorite but this game could go either way. If Kentucky can’t hit their jumpers and are forced to play inside, the advantage could go to Kansas State.
