Kentucky vs. Stony Brook – Game Time, TV Channel, Announcers, Betting Line, Predictions

The 2016 NCAA Tournament Bracket was just revealed on CBS. 

The Kentucky Wildcats out of the SEC earned the No. 4 seed in the East region, where they will face the 13th-seeded Stony Brook Seawolves out of the America East Conference. Each team won its respective conference tournament. 

The winner of this match-up is rewarded with a meeting against the winner of fifth-seeded Indiana and No. 12 seed Chattanooga.

Date: Thursday, March 17

Time: 9:30 p.m. E.T. 

TV Channel: CBS

Location: Des Moines

Announcers: Nantz/Hill/Raftery//Wolfson

Opening Betting Line: TBA

Prediction: The Wildcats didn't look like themselves for a while during the regular season, but boy did they finish on a tear. Guards Tyler Ulis and Jamal Murray are studs, and freshman big man Skal Labissiere has gone from phenom to bust to bona fide contributor.

If anything, this UK team is under-seeded. That might hurt them in round two against Indiana, but it shouldn't deter them from winning this game.
