The opponent's view

Here's what Kentucky coach John Calipari said about facing Indiana.

"(Indiana is) a well-coached, hard, bodying-up, diving for loose balls, taking charges and grind it (kind of team)," he said. "With this team (IU coach Tom Crean) is trying to play faster like when he was at Marquette. They are trying to get the give-and-go and get easy baskets. In the half court they run great stuff, they run pro stuff.

"His players get better week-to-week. I'm glad we're playing now and not a month from now. I imagine he's looking at my team and saying, 'I'm glad we're playing them now and not a month from now.' They are getting better now because the guard play is really good and solid. Now, you'll watch and they'll go to a flat 1-4 (zone) and let guards go. Or, they'll go to a middle pick-and-roll facing, and all that is to create space for their guards. They'll also try to isolate Christian Watford, who I recruited hard and (Indiana head coach) Tommy (Crean) got from us. But, Christian will take it one-on-one. They do grind it, but they also create space for guys to go and play."
