No. 16 seed Hampton can't hang with Kentucky in 79-56 loss

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) When a team has just two assists - that is not a typo - chances of things ending well are slim.

Especially when the opponent is top-ranked Kentucky, which outmatched 16th-seeded Hampton in almost every way during Thursday night's 79-56 rout at the NCAA Tournament.

Besides shooting just 29 percent, the Pirates (17-18) were outrebounded 51-31, outscored 44-20 in the paint and 18-2 on the fast break. Such things could be expected given the talent, size and depth differences between the programs, especially with the Wildcats (35-0) out to become an unbeaten national champion.
