Here are the final few minutes via The Carolina Legacy from the last time these two titans of college basketball met in the NCAA Tournament. UNC, the #2 seed in the Southeast that season, had assumed marginal control of the game despite committing 20 turnovers against the Wildcat press. #1 seeded Kentucky could not hit the broadside of a barn with a sawed off shotgun from the perimeter after throttling three straight opponents coming into this game. In the end it was a combination of UNC controlling the boards and Donald Williams hitting big shots.
We talked about UNC getting revenge on Friday night for the 1977 loss to Marquette. I am sure Kentucky fans would like some payback for this night in Birmingham.
Tip off in nine hours.
