Can Kentucky avenge their only regular season loss against Indiana?
The NCAA Tournament gets its first truly high-profile rematch in the Sweet 16 when the Kentucky Wildcats take on the Indiana Hoosiers. Indiana handed Kentucky their first and only loss of the regular season back in December in Bloomington, thanks to a buzzer-beating three-point shot by Christian Watford.
Indiana performed brilliantly in the first eight minutes of the second half of that game before they went into a scoring drought and allowed the Wildcats back in it. It appeared that Indiana was going to give away the game with a calamitous final minute, but Watford bailed out his team, scoring their last three baskets.
The Hoosiers are heavy underdogs this time around on a neutral floor and without Verdell Jones, but they've proven over and over again that they have the tools to beat anyone in the country if they can put together a complete 40-minute game.
Game Date/Time: Friday, March 23, 9:45 p.m. ET
Venue: Georgia Dome, Atlanta, Georgia
