PREDICTION: UK 74, Wichita State 65. Neither team was overly impressive in their first-round wins. UK beat NKU 79-70 simply because it is more talented, while I'm not so sure Wichita's 64-58 win over Dayton wasn't because the Flyers were just bad. Wichita State does have great balance in its scoring. UK needs another big game from Bam Adebayo and for guard Malik Monk to snap out of his shooting funk, which he is quite capable of doing. Wichita's four losses this season were arguably to the best four teams it played: Louisville, Michigan State, Oklahoma State and Missouri Valley Conference rival Illinois State. UK will be one of the top two teams the Shockers have played all season (Louisville is the other).
