No. 1 Kentucky, UCLA to meet in Chicago

(AP Photo/James Crisp)

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) A quick glance at top-ranked Kentucky's meeting with UCLA and it looks like another marquee opponent that could struggle to keep up with the Wildcats' platoon system.

After all, Kentucky (11-0) went 10 deep in beating Kansas and Texas by double digits, and it handily defeated North Carolina last weekend without forward Alex Poythress, who suffered a season-ending knee injury during a practice before the game. Even without Poythress, Kentucky goes deeper into its bench than do the Bruins (8-3) entering Saturday's showdown in Chicago.

But the Wildcats aren't looking past the Bruins and their balanced offensive attack.

No. 6 Cavs return from layoff, now 10-0

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) Justin Anderson's eyes lit up at the thought that No. 6 Virginia held Cleveland State scoreless for more than 10 minutes.
