UCLA has just knocked off Cincinnati 79-67 to advance to the Sweet 16 and a battle against Kentucky.
The game will be Friday night at approximately 9:40 p.m. ET in Memphis.
Obviously, there are a number of great story lines heading into the game:
– rematch of UCLA’s win at Rupp Arena earlier this season
– two of college basketball’s blue bloods doing battle
– two programs with most national championships in NCAA history facing off (UCLA 11, UK 8)
– John Calipari is coming back to Memphis…as the head coach of Kentucky
– the LaVar Ball clown show lives on for at least another week
– Steve Alford to Indiana?
