WISCONSIN VS. KENTUCKY
Matchup: In a rematch of last year's Final Four showdown, Wisconsin looks to dethrone undefeated Kentucky in what should be another epic battle. Kentucky sunk the Badgers last year when guard Aaron Harrison drilled a three-pointer in the final seconds to win by a point. Wooden Award front-runner and unanimous All-American selection Frank Kaminsky will team up with co-star Sam Dekker for revenge against a Kentucky team that goes nine deep, dominates in the paint and plays excellent perimeter defense. This very well could be the national championship game in itself.

Backcourt: Unlike like their bigger teammates, Wisconsin's guards are not stars. They are excellent caretakers who can nail a three-pointer on occasion. The unit is deeper with the return of Traevon Jackson, who missed 19 games with a broken foot. Jimmy Jackson's son forms a decent trio with senior Josh Gasser and sophomore Bronson Koenig. The three guards averaged just 2.5 turnovers this season. Jackson is the weakest shooter of the three but has the best court vision. Koenig tends to over-dribble but hit 41.1 percent of his three-pointers. He scored 11 points in the Final Four loss to the Wildcats last year. Gasser will be charged with perimeter defense on Kentucky's Harrison twins. He has hit at least one three-pointer in 12 of his last 13 games.
