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.
