Like it or not, pressure is on Kentucky to win

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The pressure is everywhere for Kentucky to
win a national title. Except in the locker room.

At least that's what the Wildcats (36-2) keep saying as they
head into their national semifinal showdown with Louisville (30-9)
on Saturday night in New Orleans.

Kentucky coach John Calipari cites the fact that every game
other teams play against the Wildcats is a "Super Bowl," but
there's been weighty expectations since the start of the season
that they'd cut down the nets here.

Add in that Kentucky hasn't won a title since 1998 and the `Cats
have to go through archrival Louisville, and the pressure points
build.

AP National Player of the Year Anthony Davis isn't worried. He
says all they have to do is go out and have fun.
