With Willie Cauley-Stein still out with an ankle injury, Kentucky needs Poythress to be able to play tonight, and it appears he will. Connecticut doesn't possess a ton of depth on the inside, so the Wildcats, in order to win their ninth title, have to take advantage of the mismatch. Julius Randle, Dakari Johnson, Marcus Lee and Poythress should be able to do that.
