North Carolina-Kentucky Game Sets TV Ratings Record

Malik Monk takes a shot against North Carolina.


Yesterday's North Carolina-Kentucky instant classic was the game of the year in college basketball so far.

The TV ratings certainly reflected it. The Wildcats' thrilling 103-100 win over the Heels was the highest-rated college hoops game on any television network in 2016.

Will we get another contest "that" good before March? We might, but it would have to be an incredible game to top yesterday.
