Research Notes

  • Kentucky made 55.9 percent of its shots and outscored Iowa State by 33 points outside the paint Saturday. It was the best shooting performance for the Wildcats outside the paint over their last three tournaments (11 games), and the second time they have shot over 50 percent outside the paint during that span (53.6 percent in Elite 8 vs UNC last year).

  • Kentucky shot 55 percent from the field, something it has done in both Men's Basketball Championship games so far. The last time the Wildcats shot 55 percent or better twice in the same tournament was in 1998, when it won the national championship.
