How about those UK Wildcats? Final Four bound

Unreal

How about the last three NCAA tournament games UK has played?: Wichita State, Louisville and Michigan. What an insane story. The preseason started with UK ranked number one, with talk in some corners of 40-0. The regular season found UK's resume, players, coach and his philosophy dissected and picked apart. The Wildcats fell out of the Top 25 and were an 8-seed for the tournament.
In the last seven days, UK defeated teams ranked #2, #3 and #8 in the final coaches' poll. This is three Final Four's in four years for John Calipari. And people will stay he can't coach, hilarious. What a cold blooded shot by Aaron Harrison, what a game by Marcus Lee. Lee had five field goals in the first half. He'd had five field goals in the previous 31 games. UK lost Willie Cauley-Stein and brought Lee, a McDonald's All-American off the bench!
Consider the comebacks in last three games:
Trailed Wichita State 40-31.
Trailed Louisville 18-5.
Trailed Michigan 32-22.
