*10* Saturday Elite 8 Coach's Clinic
(NCAAB) Notre Dame vs. Kentucky, 03/28/2015 4:49 PM, Score: 66 - 68
Point Spread: -11.00 | -108.00 Kentucky (Home)
Result: Loss
The Kentucky Wildcats completely dismantled West Virginia on Thursday, winning by a score of 78-39. Still undefeated this season, it's awful difficult not to like their chances in the Elite 8 versus an over-achieving Notre Dame team. I expect the Wildcats to keep on rollin' here in Cleveland.

Here are my keys to the game:

1. Line Value - Kentucky is a double-digit favorite as per usual, but even after a win by a whopping 39 points, tonight's number is far lower than it was in any of it's previous three games in the tournament. The Wildcats have won nine of their last 10 by double-digits, with an average margin of victory of 17.1 points during that span.

2. Size - With an average height of 6 "10", this Wildcats team is taller as well as longer than most NBA teams. That's a scary thought for an Irish team that is lacking in overall size.

3. X-Factor - Kentucky held West Virginia to just 24.1% from the field Thursday, and they are on pace to set the all time record for the lowest opponent's field goal percentage in a single season.

Selection: This is a play on the Kentucky Wildcats (10*)
