Good morning BBN, and happy March Madness Gameday!
The Kentucky Wildcats are back in the Round of 32, where they now have a date with the Kansas State Wildcats.
In what will be another matchup in the NCAA Tournament for the two programs, Kentucky will hope for a different outcome than what happened in 2018. Luckily for UK, things seem to be clicking at the right time.
With Jacob Toppin rounding into the player most expected to see all season, while Antonio Reeves and Oscar Tshiebwe continue to dominate, they will need a full team effort to knock off the 3-seed Wildcats from Manhattan.
Led by Keyontae Johnson, Kansas State will look to continue to build on a solid regular season in a tough Big 12. After a solid win over Montana State, the battle of the Wildcats will be an intense matchup across all five positions.
Will Kentucky pull off the upset to get back to the Sweet 16? All of BBN will be getting locked in to cheer them to victory in just a few hours.
