The Kentucky Wildcats will face the North Carolina Tar Heels on Sunday for a berth in the Final Four.
The game will be broadcast on CBS at 5:05 EST and be called by Jim Nantz, Bill Raftery, Grant Hill and Tracy Wolfson, and it will be the final Elite Eight game of the weekend.
UK is back in the Elite after an impressive win over UCLA in the Sweet 16. De’Aaron Fox scored a career-high 39 points to his team to a 86-75 win. That’s the most of any player in the NCAA Tournament so far this season.
Fellow freshman guard Malik Monk chipped in 21 points. Those two combined for 38 of UK’s 50 points in the second half of their win over UCLA.

The Tar Heels are here after dominating Butler in the Sweet 16. Joel Berry scored 26 points, Justin Jackson had 24, and the first career double-double from Luke Maye -- 16 points and 12 rebounds -- helped top-seeded UNC score a 92-80 victory over the Bulldogs.
Sunday’s date between UK and UNC will be a rematch from a December masterpiece in the CBS Sports Classic. That game saw Malik Monk’s 47 points lift the Wildcats to a 103-100 win over UNC, which is still easily the best game of this college basketball season.
