It was hardly an impressive performance for the Kentucky Wildcats, as the senior experience of the Princeton Tigers held the young freshmen at bay all game long and kept it close to the very last second. It looked like the Tigers were about to again score a big upset as the #13 seed, like they did so many years ago against the UCLA Bruins to advance to the second round.
But during March Madness, the only objective is to win and move on, and that was all Kentucky needed from Brandon Knight today to keep on going with two seconds left. With Darius Miller and Josh Harrellson carrying them most of the game, Knight finally got the chance to show how valuable it is to have talented freshman down the stretch.

All that was pretty much superior athleticism. Kentucky moves onto face West Virginia in the Round of 32.
