Set to make their first NCAA Tournament appearance ever, the Stony Brook Seawolves get the unfortunate task of taking on the Kentucky Wildcats in the second round.
The Wildcats ran the table in the SEC tourney, needing a few come from behind wins to secure another title under John Calipari.
Stony Brook Seawolves
The Seawolves first NCAA Tourney clinch was a fun one.
Getting to host the American East final, the Seawolves came from behind and slammed the door closed late on Vermont, sending their student body flooding onto the floor to celebrate the win.
Stony Brook was impressive all season long and really dominated the American East, but going up against SEC powerhouse Kentucky will be no easy task. Stony Brook can look back to the beginning of the season when they went into Vanderbilt and held tough with the Commodores throughout, only to fall by 7 in the end.
The one thing Stony Brook will have going for them is their strong defense. Stony Brook allows only 63.4 points per game, which is actually up there in terms of the nation. Again, the quality of opposition is different here, but if they can bring in the same mentality they used all year long, they’ll certainly be in this one.
The Wildcats finished the season with 5 straight wins and looked extremely impressive in the SEC tournament. The Wildcats have shown they not only have the depth, but they also are so good both inside and outside offensively that this team will be tough to beat.
Kentucky had performances of 85 points (vs. Alabama), 93 (vs. Georgia), and 82 (vs. Texas A&M). The impressive performances surpassed their average point total on the season as they average 79.6 points per game on the season.
Kentucky has 3 players that average in double figures, led by Jamal Murray who has 20.1 points per game. Right behind him is Tyler Ulis, who’s career as a Wildcat is finally coming to an end.
CBB Betting Trends:

Free Stony Brook Seawolves vs. Kentucky Wildcats CBB Prediction:
The Seawolves have been an impressive team this season, but this will certainly be a tall task for them.
It goes without saying, but they first off cannot let Kentucky get off to a fast start. Secondly, must not let this turn into a track meet. Kentucky loves the pace and will run away with this one if that does happen.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Kentucky -14.5
The Wildcats are just too much here for Stony Brook as they work the inside out game and wear the Seawolves down.
