Kentucky is moving on in the 2018 NCAA Tournament. The Wildcats topped Davidson in Boise, Idaho earlier this evening.

The game was a popular upset pick for a lot of analysts, but UK ended up on top.

The game was not won because of Kentucky's shooting. It was one in spite of it, actually.

John Calipari's team did not make a single 3-pointer.

It was the first time in more than 1,000 games that it's happened.

Here's the stat:


Kentucky will probably have to start making some 3s if it wants to advance moving forward. The Wildcats are going to be facing some tougher defenses.

Arizona, the No. 4 seed in the region, could await in the second round. The Wildcats are set to play Buffalo later tonight.

If UK can get to the Sweet 16, Virginia, which has arguably the nation's top defense, will probably be waiting.

For now, though, Coach Cal and his players can celebrate.
