The "Instant Intel" series is designed to immediately respond to a team's first-round victory by looking ahead to its next opponent.

Kentucky absolutely slaughtered East Tennessee State. The Wildcats are a No. 1 seed, though; it's expected. We, as fans, love upsets. Heck, Insider has a whole blog about 'em.

Now the question looms: Can the immensely talented but (cliché alert) inexperienced Wildcats win another one against a similarly talented Wake Forest team and advance to the Sweet 16?

The answer is: maybe. But the Wildcats will have to have a few things break right to keep their title hopes alive.


To see what factors Wake must focus on to pull the upset and what Kentucky must do to prevent it, you must be an ESPN Insider.
