On Thursday in first-round NCAA Tournament action from the South Region, the Davidson Wildcats will be taking on the Kentucky Wildcats on the basketball court. 

Davidson comes into this game with a 21-11 record overall. The Wildcats had a nice season, and really picked things up after stumbling out of the gate at 5-7. Davidson has won four straight games, including two wins over Rhode Island in that time.

USA TODAY Sports

In the Wildcats’ thrilling 58-57 Sunday victory over the Rams (which clinched the conference tournament championship), Davidson guard Kellan Grady led the team on 17 points with three rebounds, one assist and a steal. 

Over on the Kentucky side, they’re sitting at 24-10 on the year. The Wildcats had a four-game losing streak going in February, but since have won seven of their last eight games on their way to a conference tournament title. 

In the 77-72 Tennessee game win on Sunday, Kentucky’s leading scorer was Shai Gilgeous-Alexander with 29 points, seven rebounds, three assists and two steals. Kevin Knox also had a nice game for the Wildcats with 18 points and seven rebounds. 

Davidson is 4-0 ATS in their last four games overall and 4-0 ATS in their last four neutral-site games. Davidson is also 4-1 ATS in the last five following an ATS win and 1-4 ATS in their last five non-conference games. 

Meanwhile, Kentucky is 7-1 ATS in their last eight overall and 5-1 ATS in their last six following an ATS win. Kentucky is also 15-5-2 ATS in their last 22 neutral-site games and 4-9 ATS in their last 13 Thursday games. 

This should be an interesting matchup. Aside from a few slip-ups here and there, Kentucky has been pretty solid all year, while Davidson has just started coming on lately—winning eight of their last nine games (and the lone loss was a 3OT marathon). Davidson is no stranger to daunting matchups, but I just don’t think their offense can keep up here. I’m leaning toward Kentucky.
