It's time for the top overall seed to take the court. No. 1 Kentucky battles No. 16 Western Kentucky, a team that just pulled off an incredible comeback on Tuesday night in the "First Four" games.

We already saw No. 1 Syracuse nearly get upset, but the Orange barely squeaked by No. 16 UNC-Asheville to advance to the next round. Will Western Kentucky give John Calipari's Wildcats a scare?

As the night goes along, we'll watch as No. 10 West Virginia will try to upset No. 7 Gonzaga. Is that enough? Of course not. Stay tuned to this space for everything you'll need to know about the matchups between Wichita State-VCU and Baylor-South Dakota State.
