The match-up everybody wanted to see when the brackets were announced is here. Sunday at approximately 2:45 PM (Eastern) the Kentucky Wildcats (25-10, 12-6 SEC) take on the undefeated Wheat Shockers of Wichita State (35-0, 18-0 MVC). This is an interesting match-up as the pre-season #1 Kentucky Wildcats were thought by many to have a chance of going 40-0 this season, and of course that didn’t happen. Wichita State has now taken on that role as they are the only team left that still has a chance of going undefeated. Kentucky has a pretty big height advantage–similar to last night’s game against Kansas State, so it should be a fun game to watch.
The Las Vegas gambling line opened up with Wichita State being favored by 3.5 points, which is pretty crazy to think considering this is a #1 seed vs. a #8 seed match-up.
