In perhaps the most intriguing game of the second round of the NCAA Tournament, the Kentucky Wildcats, who were ranked as the preseason No. 1 team in the country, will take their No. 8 seed to St. Louis to take on Kansas State.
Date: Friday, March 21, 2014
Time: 9:40 PM EST
TV Channel: CBS
Location: Scottrade Center (St. Louis, MO)
Prediction: Louisville wasn’t the only team in the state of Kentucky that felt it was under-seeded. UK finished the season tied for second place in the SEC and reach the league’s tournament title game, yet was rewarded with a middle-of-the-pack 8-seed for its troubles. Kansas State, meanwhile, comes in on a bit of a slide, having lost four of its last six games. The smart money here says to take the Wildcats…from Kentucky.
