The Kentucky Wildcats (28-10, 12-6 SEC) have advanced to the Final Four to take on the Wisconsin Badgers (30-7, 12-6 Big Ten) on Saturday in North Texas at 8:49 PM (Eastern). The Wildcats are coming off a 75-72 thriller win against Michigan while the Badgers are coming off an overtime 64-63 win against Arizona. For Kentucky, Willie Cauley-Stein is listed as doubtful but quoted today that his ankle is 70-80% healed and that it would be heartbreaking if he didn’t get to play in the final four. Having Willie would be a huge factor, as Wisconsin’s best player (at least as of late), Frank Kaminsky, is a 7′ long, skinny, quick center that Willie would match up well against.
From what I’ve read, Kentucky’s Las Vegas gambling line opened up with the Cats winning by 2.5, but the line has since changed to the Cats by 1.5.

Our favorite place to discuss all things UK basketball with fellow CAT fans is over at CatsIllustrated. There are normally a few thousand people online during games and usually 1,000+ people online on days where there aren’t any games. There are topics about all things UK basketball here. I must warn you though, people can get extremely crazy after a UK loss.
