Mike DeCourcy previews Kentucky's tough region

03/15/2017 04:50 PM

Kentucky’s path to the final four is tough, with potential rematches against UCLA and UNC in the sweet 16 and elite eight respectively. But this is nothing new for the Wildcats, who have faced tough roads to the final four in the past. Following the Selection Sunday special, Mike DeCourcy of sportingnews.com wrote a piece about Kentucky once again getting placed in a tough region.

“What would an NCAA Tournament be without Kentucky getting slapped upside the head with a bracket?” DeCourcy writes. “I mean, really, when’s the last time you looked at where the Wildcats were placed in the field and said, “Cakewalk!” OK, maybe you’d never say “cakewalk” under any circumstance. It’s a pretty lame expression. If you’re a Kentucky fan, though, you don’t even need a preferable synonym handy. It never comes up.”

DeCourcy joined TJ Beisner to discuss why Kentucky seemingly always lands in a tough region and how the Wildcats can make it to the Final Four.
