UPDATED 03/26/2016 @ 3:30 PM (ET): A 720p HD replay of last night’s Kentucky vs. Washington NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 game is ready to go below.
UPDATED 01/02/2016: So I have added the MTSU game from 12/13/2015 below today, but there are 21 minutes or so of missing footage. This game wasn’t available on TV or via WatchESPN like every other game this season–it was only available online via the conference USA’s digital network subscription service, and they screwed this game up. At around the 18:21 minute mark it skips about 21 minutes and 27 seconds worth of coverage–most of the first quarter (the score was 2-2) until a few minutes into the second quarter (with the score being 26-18 Kentucky). They were supposed to try to reupload the game to their servers a week ago, but so far there’s no change so this is the best it will get for the time being.
Note that if a video below ever says it cannot be played on this site, just click on the YouTube logo or the title in the video player and it should play just fine directly on YouTube.

Kentucky Basketball Game Replays
We are testing out the women’s games to see if there’s enough interest in them. Depending on how well they do will be the deciding factor on whether or not we continue posting women’s games.
I’m not sure how long it will take us to post replays of the games, but hopefully less than 24 hours.
The replays will be hosted on YouTube and should work across all platforms and operating systems. The videos have been tested on Windows using Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, iOS using Safari, and Android using Mozilla Firefox — and they work just fine on all of them. If you come across a browser they don’t work on, please comment and let us know.
Archiving the Games
Do you want to download and archive the games for later/offline viewing? No problem. Follow these easy steps.
1. Right-click the title text of the game you want to download (the text just underneath the thumbnail) then left-click the option to copy the URL. In Chrome and Firefox this option is called “Copy link address” and “Copy link location” respectively. Internet Explorer will say something along the lines of “Copy Shortcut.”
2. Navigate to the KeepVid website. Once the site has loaded, paste the URL you copied from step 1 into their text box and then hit the “DOWNLOAD” button. Note: you’ll need Java installed to use this site, and you will be prompted to install it if Java isn’t on your machine.
3. You should get a prompting to allow Java to run. Allow it. Now you will be at a page that provides you with multiple download options. Click on your preferred resolution and file format and the file will start downloading to your PC.
Once finished downloading, the file should open in your favorite media player, but if you have issues getting it to play, I recommend trying these players in this order: VLC Media Player, Media Player Classic Home Cinema (MPC-HC), and Windows Media Player.
Note that if you have issues getting the KeepVid site to work, we recommend trying a free program called 4K Video Downloader. There are versions of this program available for Windows, Macs, and Linux.
