TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Kentucky coach John Calipari sums up his
team, maybe even his program, in one sentence.
He says: "You can't count on freshmen."
Princeton can only hope that's the case in the NCAA tournament.
The No. 13 seed Tigers play the fourth-seeded Wildcats in the
tournament's second round Thursday. It's a matchup that features
Princeton's seasoned upperclassmen and Kentucky's talented freshmen - experience against youth, veterans versus rookies.
Princeton coach Sydney Johnson says it's his team's "moment"
and "we're not going to spoil it."
Under former coach Pete Carril, Princeton was famous for
scaring, and even upsetting, some of college basketball's top
programs in the NCAA tournament. The most memorable was a one-point loss to top-seeded Georgetown in 1989.
