Earlier this season [11/15/11], the Wildcats were able to get the best of the Jayhawks, 75- 65 at New York’s Madison Square Garden: The score was tied at halftime.
National Player of the year recipient, Anthony Davis will lead the Wildcats in tonight’s match up against the Tyshawn Taylor led Jayhawks. Many believe the fate of Kentucky head coach, John Calipari’s first championship victory will be determined by Davis’ performance. If the Jayhawks can force the Wildcats to settle for perimeter jumpers over layups and dunks Bill Self could leave tonight with his second national title in five years.
