From Gary Parrish of CBSSports.com: “This time of the year, basically every year, people with jobs like my job get asked to go on radio stations all over the country to talk about the Final Four, and one of the things we’re often asked to explain is how some low-seeded team reached the national semifinals.
This year, that team is Kentucky.
So I’ve been asked a lot about Kentucky this week — about how this No. 8 seed has come together late to defeat (in order) Kansas State, Wichita State, Louisville and Michigan, about how the new Fab Five have lifted the Wildcats to their third Final Four in four seasons. Truth be told, there is no single answer to this question. Some of it is John Calipari and his self-described “tweak.” Some of it Julis Randle beasting. Some of it is a new-found confidence.
Any of those answers work, I guess.
But the best answer, I think, is that UK has been shooting uncharacteristically well.”
