Washington has been one of the biggest surprises in this tournament, which includes a win over number two seed Maryland. However, beating Kentucky in Rupp is a different story. This will be another big test for the Huskies.
It must be nice to play tournament games on your home court, huh? Washington is a solid defensive team, but the Wildcats have the best player on the court in Epps and have the help from the home crowd. I'll take Kentucky and the reasonable line.
