ATLANTA, GA – The Kentucky Wildcats were forced to endure constant replays of their heartbreaking loss at Indiana as one of the marquee moments of the college basketball regular season.
Friday night, the Wildcats exacted their long-awaited revenge.
The top overall seed in this year’s tournament continued their march towards a national title, with a 102-90 thumping of Indiana in the South Regional semifinals.
