The Kentucky Wildcats and the Indiana Hoosiers will meet in a rematch from the regular season with a birth in the Elite 8 on the line this time around.
Friday's matchup between the Kentucky Wildcats and the Indiana Hoosiers is one of the most anticipated games of the 2012 NCAA Tournament so far. The game is a rematch of a regular season meeting when the Hoosiers handed the Wildcats their first loss of the season on a buzzer beater.
Indiana defeated New Mexico State in the second-round and then won a thrilling matchup against VCU to reach the Sweet 16. Kentucky knocked off Western Kentucky and Iowa State to earn their trip to Atlanta.
The game will also serve as a matchup of two of the best freshman big men in the country in Kentucky's Anthony Davis and Indiana' Cody Zeller. Davis is projected as the likely No. 1 pick in this year's NBA Draft while Zeller led the Hoosiers in scoring and rebounding as a freshman.
Game Date/Time: Friday, March 23, 9:45 p.m. ET
Location: Georgia Dome, Atlanta, Georgia
