On December 10, 2011, the unranked Indiana Hoosiers knocked off the top ranked Kentucky Wildcats 73-72 in Bloomington, Indiana. That game gave credence to Indiana’s undefeated record and served notice that Indiana was once again for real in college basketball. I won’t begrudge Indiana the win. They outperformed Kentucky in the clutch and won the game. However, I still think that Kentucky was their own worst enemy in that game and that a “perfect storm” of condition had to occur for Indiana to knock Kentucky off. At least five things happened in that first meeting that led to Kentucky losing, hence the perfect storm. If only one of those five things had not occurred, I maintain Kentucky would have won and I still stand by my opinion that Kentucky will win eight of ten games against the Hoosiers on a neutral court and here is why.
