LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Every player in Kentucky's seven-man rotation has led the Wildcats in scoring this season.

Their balance forces opponents to pick which player to try and stop and who to make beat them.

Kentucky coach John Calipari has a pretty good idea what counterpart Tom Crean will try when Indiana (27-8) meets the Wildcats (34-2) on Friday in the South Regional semifinals in Atlanta.

Calipari says Indiana will give point guard Marquis Teague ample opportunities to score along with forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.

The Hooisers are one of two teams to topple the Wildcats, but the two freshmen had strong performances in the first meeting in December. And Teague became the seventh player to be the team's leading scorer in his last game to help Kentucky reach the round of 16.
