The Rebels' 6'8" Mike Moser is a force, yes. But he can't bang with Baylor's Perry Jones III (6'11"), Quincy Miller (6'9") and Quincy Acy (6'7").

Calipari's latest crew of superfreshmen has been hoping for a rematch since Dec. 10, when a buzzer-beater by Christian Watford downed the Cats 73--72. This finish isn't as dramatic.
