2012 NCAA Bracket, Kentucky Vs. Baylor Score: Wildcats Final Four Bound

No surprises here: the Kentucky Wildcats are going to the Final Four. Kentucky beat Baylor 82-70, and the result was never really in doubt as the Wildcats led by 20 at halftime and cruised to a win.

Anthony Davis led the Wildcats with a ridiculous (for anyone but him) 18 points, 11 rebounds and six blocks. Quincy Acy had 22 points and eight rebounds for Baylor in the loss.

The Wildcats advance to face in-state rival Louisville for a chance to go play for the national title.
