You guys have got the hardest-playing team in the tournament.

"Their bigs are really skilled around the basket, they know how to move on the floor, but we're just better than them overall, I think, so the advantage is our way, in my opinion", Richards said.

"They're not really as athletic", Richards said of the Terriers. Magee's crucial 3-pointer with 3:12 left put the game out of reach. And we just turned the ball over in the first half.

"First of all, we selected a damn good team", White said.

Wofford point guard Storm Murphy had six assists and no turnovers, and the Terriers hung tough with Kentucky on the boards, finishing with 30 rebounds, six less than Kentucky.

Magee finished 0-for-12 from 3-point range and managed only eight points as Kentucky beat Wofford 62-56 in Jacksonville to advance to the Sweet 16. "But that's when Cam was playing fantastic in the first half". It's about doing what we're comfortable doing and making an impact on the game.

"I'm still kind of in shock", Magee said.

According to Rick Bozich of WDRB, the early line for the Kentucky-Wofford game has been released.

"I said to him before the last game, 'You've been waiting for this your whole life, ' " Calipari said.

It may be hard to find on a map, but it's clear the Terriers have a talented squad. "I danced in that locker room".

Soon after, Wofford's lead ballooned even further.

Kentucky coach John Calipari doesn't expect leading scorer PJ Washington to return for the team's second-round NCAA tournament game Saturday.

Going into the game, he needed to make three 3-pointers to break the mark.

"What they're going to do at some point is cut the cast off ... they just thought it would heal faster".

Kentucky was behind 24-18 but used a 10-2 run to end the first half.

Kentucky made it to the second round by stomping Abilene Christian 79-44 while Wofford dominated Seton Hall 84-68. Nathan Hoover made four of them to finish with 19 points and Cameron Jackson chipped in with 11 points. Powell followed up that make with another one following a defensive stop and for the first time since the opening minutes of the first half, Seton Hall held a one-point lead. They're on TV all the time. He often takes ridiculous shots, having to contort and turn his body at a variety of angles, yet is still able to make them at an excellent rate.
