We Absolutely Love This Guy's Game

Every so often a player comes along you just really like.  We feel that way about Kendall Marshall, who is a brilliant passer, and while we don't have much more time for Kentucky than we do UNC, we have all the time in the world for Michael Kidd-Gilchrist: the guy is superb.

Just look what he did to Louisville: 24 points and 19 rebounds.

He has as much heart as anyone in the college game, and he's the primary reason why we think Kentucky is no worse than a co-favorite for the title. He's grabbed that team by the scruff of the neck and is making it into something far beyond what it would be otherwise.

This is a guy to keep an eye on, not just for this season but for years to come. He's going to be great.
