Perfection

Perfection. It’s easy to say but nearly impossible to achieve.

If Kentucky runs the table in the NCAA Tournament, the Wildcats will add their names to the list of immortal college basketball teams that went wire-to-wire without a loss. Kentucky has favorable odds at most sportsbooks, and it is the popular choice in Tournament brackets across the world. But perfection is as challenging as it is rare, and only seven teams in the past 50 years have achieved it — and none since the 1976 Indiana Hoosiers.

Can Kentucky run the table? Or will perfection, and history, remain elusive?
