Kentucky's defense clicking ahead of tournament run

03/15/2017 04:42 PM

Kentucky’s defense has struggled throughout most of the season, but it seems to be improving as the Wildcats enter the NCAA tournament. During Kentucky’s 11-game winning streak, the Wildcats have held opponents to 66.8 points per game while forcing opponents to commit 12 turnovers on average. Kentucky has held opponents to under 70 points in eight of those 11 games.

Is Kentucky’s defense good enough to help the Wildcats win a national title? KSTV’s TJ Beisner and Bradley McKee discuss.
