5 Reasons Why Kentucky Will Beat Wisconsin in the Final Four

The Kentucky Wildcats have had a wild season. They entered the year as the No. 1 team and then disappointed right off the bat. They didn’t win the SEC regular season title or conference tournament. But, they have been playing great basketball in the dance -- while proving so many people wrong -- and will have a chance to play in the national championship.

Let’s take a look at five reasons why Kentucky will beat Wisconsin in the Final Four.

Kentucky may not be the best team left, but it is definitely the most talented. A good amount of the team could enter the draft this summer. The Wildcats brought in arguably one of the best recruiting classes of all time this year and that talent has been showcased in the dance.

Kentucky entered the year ranked No. 1 in college basketball. Until the tournament, the Wildcats basically disappointed all season long. Well, the most talented team in the country is playing their best basketball of the season. That’s scary.

There are not many players better than Julius Randle. Especially in the post. Randle is a man and he will move bodies out of his way when driving to the basket. He scores at will and he is one heck of a rebounder. After all, Randle is averring 15.8 points per game and 12 boards per game in the tourney.

Frank Kaminsky may be a mismatch nightmare, but the exact same thing can be said about Julius Randle.

James Young is 6-foot-6. Aaron and Andrew Harrison are 6-foot-6. Alex Poythress is 6-foot-8. Julius Randle and Marcus Lee are 6-foot-9. Dakari Johnson and Willie Cauley-Stein are 7-foot-0.

Kentucky definitely has some size and its size will give every single opponent some problems. The Wildcats have a huge advantage when the Harrison twins are the smallest players in the starting five at 6-foot-6.

Arguably the Most Complete Team

Other than having tremendous size and a very talented team, Kentucky is arguably the most complete team. It has an NBA prospect at every position. There is no other team that can say that.
