The Michigan Wolverines are the last remaining obstacle to Kentuckys 16th appearance in the NCAA Final Four, but an insubstantial roadblock they are not largely because of the three-point shot.
These guys are not Pitinos Bombinos who famously attempted more than 800 three-pointers in a season four times during the 1990s.
But Coach John Beileins bombers knock theirs down with greater efficiency than any team in Kentucky history.
Michigan has made 312 of 776 three-point attempts this season for a scintillating 40.2 percent.
Only Creighton (41.4), Utah State (40.6) and Cleveland State (40.4) shot the three-pointer better than the Wolverines, who make 8.7 threes per game.
Michigans percentage has risen even higher in its three NCAA Tournament games.
This season, Kentucky faced two teams Michigan State (39.3) and Belmont (39.2) among the nations top 20 three-point percentage teams.
The Spartans made five of 12 attempts (41.7) and beat Kentucky 78-74. The Bruins hit 11 of 30 (36.6) and lost to Kentucky 93-80.
