No. 1 Kentucky tops the No. 5 Tar Heels, 73-72

This was supposed to be a No. 1 and No. 2 match-up, but the Tar Heels stumbled earlier this year to UNLV. The game was nevertheless great, as the Wildats' Super Frosh Anthony Davis, Marquis Teague, and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist led their young team to Kentucky's 38th straight win under John Calipari at the Rupp Arena. Kidd-Gilchrist had a career day as he scored 17, the highest for a game in his short career. Anthony Davis has emerged as a menace on the paint when he blocked John Henson's buzzer-beater attempt to seal the game. Now that the Cats have ousted a premier opponent, they look like a young, talented squad with huge potential in March (and maybe April).
