MARCH MADNESS FREE PICK: Take the UNDER. According to the latest college basketball trends, the Wildcats are 1-8 Under last 9 vs. a team with a winning S.U. record., 1-5 UNDER last 6 Friday games, 2-8 UNDER last 10 vs. Big Ten and 3-10-1 UNDER last 14 neutral site games. Under is 4-0 in Hoosiers last 4 games following a ATS loss. Indiana is 0-5-1 UNDER L6 Under as an underdog, 1-6 UNDER L7 neutral site games, 1-4 UNDER L5 NCAA Tournament games., 5-11 UNDER L16 vs. SEC and 3-7 UNDER L10 as a dog of 7.0-12.5.  The Hoosiers upset the Wildcats on 73-72 on Dec. 10. This time, without PG Verdell Jones, Indiana wants to slow the pace but Kentucky will do a better job of defending the three. Indiana made 9 of 15 from three-point range and that was the difference.  Kentucky will pressure the basketball and look to force turnovers and limit three’s. Indiana will also have a tough time scoring inside against freshman Anthony Davis, who played just 24 minutes in the first game due to foul trouble.
