"Unbelievable! Unbelievable! Can't believe it!" Sound familiar? That's what Dick Vitale screamed after Indiana's Christian Wofford buried a game-winning 3-pointer to hand Kentucky what would be its only loss of the season.
On Friday night, the fourth-seeded Hoosiers must take on the top-seeded Wildcats in a rematch most college hoops fans were anticipating since Selection Sunday.
John Calipari's squad was in cruise control in its first game against Western Kentucky, and other than a brief run by Iowa State in the second half in the third round, the Wildcats have been absolutely dominant.
Indiana didn't have many problems handling Nex Mexico State in its first game, but nearly fell to No. 12 -- and last year's bracket buster -- VCU. The Rams missed a what would have been a game-winning 3-pointer in the final seconds and the Hoosiers held on to win, 63-61.
Will Kentucky avenge the December loss? Or will Tom Crean's Hoosiers upset Kentucky again and reach the Elite Eight?
