A couple numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: The Wildcats have allowed their opponents to shoot 45.60% from the floor on average, which is the 44th highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball. The Braves have experienced some struggles of their own as they have only been able to knock down 38.50% percent of their shots, which is the 358th lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
