This will be the 57th time that the rivals square off against one another and their first matchup since 2012.
There will be an amazing matchup between 2 of the the nation’s top Point Guards, Indiana’s senior, Yogi Ferrell and Kentucky’s sophomore, Tyler Ulis. Both players are playing extremely well as Ferrel got his 1st double-double of the season in the 1st round against 12th seed Chattanooga while Ulis led the floor for his team as usual in the thrashing of Stony Brook.
Indiana will definitely rely on their senior PG and their offense which shot nearly 65% from the field. They have other players that will need to step up like forward OG Anunoby who scored 14 pts and averaging 13.5 pts in his last 2 games. Their frontcourt of Troy Williams and Thomas Bryant will need to cope with the Wildcats’ veterans. This will be Ferrell’s 136th career game for Indiana, a record for any Hoosiers.
Coach Calipri’s Wildcats are excited about this rematch of their 2012 Sweet 16 matchup. Kentucky comes into this game after smoking out # 13 Stony Brook, with great help from their leading scorer Jamal Murray’s 19 pts, 15 of them coming in the second half. Their Freshman Isaiah Briscoe played well and was effective with a double-double 13 pts and 11 boards performance. Kentucky broke the single-game record in terms of blocks with 15 in an NCAA Tournament in their first round match. Ironically, it was their leader’s Ulis lowest scoring game in over two months with 10 pts and 7 assists. The Wildcats only played one Big Ten team and lost to Ohio State whereas the Hoosiers toppled the Buckeyes by 25 pts.
The winner of this game will face East region’s top seed North Carolina or 9th seed Providence if there’s another upset.
