Nothing has rattled Kentucky to this point. Unbeaten and unblemished, the Wildcats have handled every challenge this season.
They’re 36 for 36 in their run at hoops immortality. An interesting test awaits.
Big Blue is about to face something it hasn’t seen – a relentless, choking West Virginia press that has buckled teams and forced them to tap out. The Mountaineers are in your face for 40 minutes.
They’re nicknamed ”Press Virginia” for good reason.
Kentucky coach John Calipari has warned his players what’s coming.
”You had better be ready,” he said.
The top-seeded Wildcats (36-0), four wins from perfection and becoming the first team to go unbeaten since Indiana in 1976, will have their ball-handling skills and composure assessed like never before Thursday night when they meet the fifth-seeded Mountaineers (25-9) in the Midwest Regional semifinals.
