How Arkansas Wins

Arkansas will win this game if they keep scoring the way they do. They average 80.5 points per game and that ranks 14th in the country. The Razorbacks will also need to rebound the ball better as they only average 36.6 per game and that ranks 70th in the country. The final thing they will need to do is keep forcing turnover. Their defense forces an average of 17.4 turnovers per game and that ranks 2nd in the country.

 

How Kentucky Wins

Kentucky will win this game if they keep scoring at a high rate. They average 78.2 points per game and that ranks 30th in the nation. The Wildcats also need to play better defense. Their opponents score an average of 66.9 points per game and that ranks 81st in the nation. The final thing they will need to do is keep rebounding the ball the way they do. They average 41.4 rebounds per game and that ranks 4th in the nation.

 

My Prediction

Both teams want to make this a high scoring game. Whichever team can win the rebound battle and get key defensive stops will have the best chance in winning the game.

I think that the game is a high scoring game. I think that with home court advantage Kentucky wins the rebound battle and gets the key defensive stops to win the game.

Final Score

Kentucky: 79
Arkansas: 71
