Missouri  has been tagged as a poor road team. Of course, Kentucky coach John Calipari remembers two years ago when people said the same thing about UK — and the Cats regrouped to reach the Final Four.

“This team is not – this team attacks the glass. If we ball-watch, you get beat. You have no chance of beating them. If you don’t physically check out, if you’re ball-watching, they’re sending three. If you’re not down in a stance ready to play, they got two or three guys that can break you down on the dribble, not just their point. If you’re not physical on the post, you’re going to get chucked. You’d better be down and ready,” Calipari said Friday.

“They’re a good team. They’ve been top 20 most of the year. They lost a couple road games. They kind of did what we did a couple years ago, where we couldn’t win a road game. They’re coming into this game with the idea we got to change our fortunes, and we’re trying to do the same. So two teams should be fighting each other. That’s what it should be.”
