South Carolina's Darrin Horn on Davis, UK

"They are another really talented Kentucky team. They are good defensively. Davis blocking five shots a game makes a huge difference," Horn said. "Offensively, they present so many challenges. They have a tremendous amount of versatility and a lot of pieces to hurt you on both ends."

"I think he is a game changer. He changes everything for their defense and for your offense," Horn said of Kentucky's Anthony Davis. "In my mind, he is the most important part of what they are doing defensively. He allows them to use their length and athleticism on defense. They are not a help-oriented defense, but the don't have to give a lot of help because they have Anthony Davis back there to clean up. You are trying to make plays against an athletic defender and you cannot kick it out because they are not helping and you have a tremendous shot blocker (Davis) coming over. It makes for a difficult combination trying to score baskets.

"We tried to go at him to eliminate him coming over from the weak side. He is not really strong and powerful yet. But I don't know what you do with him. He comes from all over. He's just a terrific talent. He blocked a 3-pointer where he was standing two feet in the paint. He plays with a motor and plays extremely hard every possession."
