MARCH MADNESS / NCAA TOURNAMENT

At Uniondale, N.y.

March 17, 2001|MIKE TERRY

*Kentucky vs. Iowa: Kentucky has won four of the six games played between the schools, but the teams are 1-1 in NCAA tournament competition. Coincidentally, both teams eliminated the other in the second round; Iowa beat Kentucky in 1956, the Wildcats returning the favor in 1997. If the seventh-seeded Hawkeyes are to advance to the Sweet 16 this time, they'll have to get a defensive handle on forward Tayshaun Prince. The 6-foot-9 junior, a second-team All-America selection from Compton, has been the top 'Cat the last three games. He scored 19 points against Arkansas and 26 against Mississippi in the Southeastern Conference tournament and 27 points against Holy Cross in the first round of the NCAA tournament. Iowa has the kind of point guard in Dean Oliver who can handle the full-court pressure Kentucky likes to apply.
