Baylor Vs. Kentucky Elite 8 Preview: Bears Need Big Game From Brady HeslipTo Upset Wildcats

Baylor may have played against run and gun teams such as Missouri during Big 12 play, but that will be taken to another level on Sunday afternoon in Atlanta as the Bears will face the 35-2 Kentucky Wildcats.

Perry Jones III and Quincy Acy have the athleticism to keep up with Anthony Davis and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, but the key for the Bears will be their outside game will have to be productive enough to allow Jones III and Acy to avoid being double teamed in the paint.

Brady Heslip and Pierre Jackson will need to hit big shots for the Bears to be in this one at the end.

Defensively Acy should be able to hold his own against Davis, but the biggest trouble for the Bears may very well be 6'8" guard Darius Miller. Baylor hasn't played against many teams with a player of his size in the backcourt.

Expect this game to be full of high intensity and played at a fast pace.
