    Kentucky vs. West Virginia was the game here. A couple of interesting storylines to recall. Could the Big East finally get a quality win in this tournament?



    And could John Calipari get a win against Bob Huggins, something he has only done once in his career? No, and yes.



    The Big East, or the Big Least, as Charles Barkley referred to them as, suffered another tough loss here as West Virginia went down. Brandon Knight went off on the Mountaineers in a pretty exciting back and forth game though. Kentucky has all the tools to make a run in this tournament.moreless

    The general consensus on the CBS studio set was that Kentucky had just enough talent to beat a gritty West Virginia and they turned out to be right. West Virginia came into the Tournament ranked #22 in the country, so this result is just about right. Despite being up by eight at the half, West Virginia could not score for over six minutes to start the second half and later went cold and gave up another Kentucky run, this time 11-0, from which they did not recover.



    Kentucky's next opponent will likely be Ohio State and it's hard to imagine them winning that game. Regardless of what happens, an SEC championship and a trip to the Sweet 16 is a pretty nice season.moreless

    • (on Kentucky guard Brandon Knight)
      West Virginia Coach Bob Huggins: He was really good. I thought we did a much better job the second half, but there's a reason why everybody recruits those guys; they're pretty good. Terrence Jones made some huge plays for them, some huge baskets. They're talented ... really, really talented.

    • Kentucky Guard Brandon Knight: Definitely for me I feel a lot more anxiety, especially coming into today's game, not playing so well. But just playing these type of games where you know if you lose your season is done, I think guys really come out and they fight a lot harder, they go after rebounds a lot tougher. It kind of changes the game. Guys play tough throughout the season, but I think they step it up a notch in the tournament.

      Kentucky Guard Brandon Knight: I felt more confident. My teammates continued to have faith in me even though I didn't play such a great game (Thursday against Princeton). They still had faith in me, and they really helped me out, finding me and stuff like that. And they really stepped their level of play up, which got me more shots.
