Three Kentucky Teams Take the Court Saturday in NCAA
Saturday holds another day of basketball bliss for fans in the Bluegrass State. UK, U of L, and Murray State are all in action in the men's NCAA tournament.
UK, who beat WKU Thursday night, takes on Iowa State Saturday at 6:45pm central on CBS. The Wildcats are the tournament's overall #1 seed, and are picked by many analysts as the most talented team in the draw. With the game in Louisville, UK will basically play a home game against the Cyclones.
The Louisville Cardinals, meanwhile, are out west in Portland and will play New Mexico at 8:40pm central. The Cards won their first-round game against Davidson Thursday behind the strong play of junior point guard Peyton Siva.
Murray State takes on Marquette Saturday at 4:15pm central on CBS. The Racers are the #6 seed in the West Region, and--like UK--play their game in Louisville.
