The Badgers will take on the Kentucky Wildcats on Saturday night at 7:49 p.m. local time. It will be the fifth all-time meeting between the two schools, with the most recent coming in the Sweet 16 back in 2003 when Kentucky took down Wisconsin.
Kentucky won a thriller over Michigan, 75-72, thanks to a last-second three from freshman guard Andrew Harrison with just 2.3 seconds left.
John Calipari's Wildcats are 28-10 this season and, unlike the Badgers, entered March Madness sputtering. Prior to the NCAA tournament, Kentucky lost four of its last seven regular season games.
Now, that all is irrelevant. The two teams will meet on Saturday night with a trip to the national championship on the line.
