Dick Vitale Predicts Kentucky To Defeat Baylor

Overall No. 1 seed Kentucky Wildcats have not really been too challenged in this years NCAA Tournament, but when they face the Baylor Bears it will be one of the few times where the athletes on the opposing team can match Kentucky.

Baylor has athletes like Quincy Acy and Perry Jones III who can keep up with any of Kentucky's players, but if Baylor is going to win they need Brady Heslip and Pierre Jackson to make their outside shots. Basically Baylor will have to play their best game of the year to defeat Kentucky.

ESPN's Dick Vitale thinks it will be Kentucky's bench to why they will defeat Baylor and move onto the Final Four:

Scott Drew's team has the athletes to give Kentucky a battle, but one key could be Darius Miller off the bench. Look for big things from Doron Lamb and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, who starred against Indiana.
