Pitino: IB ready for Xentucky's pressure By Mike Embry TW ASSOCIATED Ht$$ ' . . LOUISVILLE, Ky. Kentucky coach Rick Pitino doesn't expect No. 8 Indiana to wilt under defensive pressure from his No. 6 Wildcats on Saturday night. While Indiana (6-0) starts freshmen Jason Collier and A. J. Guyton, it's juniors Andrae Patterson and Neil Reed, who are the go-to guys for the youthful Hoosiers.
