I think it is safe to say that Utah C Andrew Bogut has been successfully exposed by a tenacious Kentucky squad. The towering Aussie’s post-up moves are much more impressive against weaker/smaller competition, and the Wildcats’ hack-a-Bogut tactics paid major dividends, the Utes’ center shooting just 2 of 11 from the charity stripe.
Earlier in the game, I had thought that Kentucky double-teaming Bogut would leave someone else wide open when or if the ball would be kicked back out…but Bogut kept looking for his shot at every opportunity.

Earlier, Michigan State’s Paul Davis (above, left) and Alan Anderson proved to be every bit the equal of Duke’s Sheldon Williams and Daniel Ewing. Tom Izzo has now made the Elite Eight 5 times in the past 8 seasons, which puts him in pretty rarified territory.
