IU and UK Rematch Set for the Sweet 16 – Who Will Win? [POLL]

The NCAA committee that lays out the bracket for the men’s basketball tournament got exactly what they wanted when they put IU and UK in same region, a rematch between the team many feel to be the best in the country and the team that handed them their first of only two losses the entire season.

As much as Kentucky fans would like to forget, it was their arch rival, the Hoosiers that stunned the basketball world inside Assembly Hall in Bloomington with this last second three pointer from Christian Watford.

The two teams meet again next Friday in the Sweet 16 (game time TBD) after the Wildcats easily took care of Iowa State 87-71 to advance. The Hoosiers had a tougher path to the game after narrowly edging Virginia Commonwealth 63-61. No doubt this will be a great game to watch as UK looks to avenge that December 10th loss and IU looks to prove that win wasn’t a fluke.

I’ll be pulling for the Hoosiers in this one. Although I didn’t go to IU, I have friends who did and friends whose older brothers or sisters did. Those aren’t the only reasons though. I was born and raised a proud Hoosier which means I’m always going to pull for the home team. Now that I’ve said my peace, I want you to weigh in.
