Q. Ulis and Jamal Murray get the most of the headlines on that team. Who is the third guy on Kentucky that can give you problems if you’re not paying attention to him?
YOGI FERRELL: I would say definitely Willis, him being stretch 4 or stretch 5 that can knock down 3 at an unbelievable rate. Scout can knock down 17, 15-footer and you have Alex Poythress down there in the alley that can score over any shoulder. You’ve got multiple guys on that team that can hurt you in any way. So the biggest thing is stick to our defensive coverages.

NICK ZEISLOFT: At this time of the year, anyone can play well and make shots. Whether it’s those two guys making shots or someone that doesn’t play a lot making shots, we have to focus in on every single one because one shot here or there can be the difference in the game.

COLLIN HARTMAN: I think the big guys down low are a big key. Keeping them off the boards and making them foul and be the let them block shots and create transition opportunities for them, so we have to be smart with the ball and be aggressive on box outs.

TROY WILLIAMS: Another will be Isaiah Briscoe. He’s crafty with the ball. He can get to the rim, get fouls, and like Collin said, their bigs and Willis is also a really good one.

THOMAS BRYANT: Anyone and everyone on that Kentucky team is a threat on the court. So you’ve just got to be aware of anyone that comes on the floor and take it from there.
