Kentucky Holds Off Wichita State to Advance to Sweet 16

The Kentucky Wildcats are headed back to the Sweet 16.

Thanks to a 65-62 over Wichita State, the Wildcats advanced to the second weekend of the NCAA Tournament for the seventh time in the last nine years.

It certainly didn't come easy for Kentucky in Indianapolis on Saturday, though, as it took a last second defensive stand to capture the victory.

With the clock winding down, and the Wildcats up 65-62, Bam Adebayo blocked Landry Shamet's three-point attempt at the buzzer.

The Wildcats are now headed to Memphis, where they will play UCLA on Friday in the Sweet 16.

It will be rematch of the two team's December 3rd matchup, when the Bruins beat Kentucky 97-92 at Rupp Arena.
