Kentucky Handles Its Business

On a day when a handful of top seeds either found themselves victims of stunning upsets (Georgetown and Vanderbilt) or struggled to hold off their lower-seeded foes (Villanova and Baylor), at least one team did what it was supposed to: Kentucky. SB Nation's Kentucky blog, A Sea of Blue, was unsurprisingly pleased with the game:

Kentucky, maybe for the first time in a long time, approached this game with exactly the right mindset, and it showed.  They respected their opponent, treated them as though they were as dangerous as the Kansas Jayhawks or the Syracuse Orange.  That respect took away any chance of the emotional flip-flop that did in teams like the Vanderbilt Commodores and the Georgetown Hoyas

Kentucky respected their opponent, looked them in the eye, ripped out the still-beating heart from their chest and ate it right in front of them.  There was never any doubt, nor fear, nor trepidation.  Kentucky treated the Buccaneers just like this was a Final Four game against another #1 seed.  Unfortunately for ETSU, they were not up to that challenge.
