Game times announced for 2015 CBS Sports Classic from @BarclaysCenter on 12/19. UCLA vs. UNC at 1 pm / Ohio State vs. Kentucky at 3:30 pm— CBS Sports CBB (@CBSSportsCBB) August 18, 2015
The Wildcats are 11-8 all-time versus Ohio State and have defeated the Buckeyes each of its last three appearances dating back to 1994.
Their last meeting was not only the most memorable in the series, but one of the best finishes to an NCAA Tournament game you'll ever see. It came in the 2011 East Regional semifinals, when the No. 4 seed Wildcats defeated top-seeded Ohio State 62-60 thanks to a game-winning jumper from freshman Brandon Knight.
