An early look at the Kentucky-UCLA rematch

03/20/2017 07:45 PM

Kentucky is looking for revenge on Friday as they face UCLA in the Sweet 16.

The Bruins handed the Wildcats their first loss of the season back on December 3, beating them 97-92 at Rupp Arena. Six UCLA players scored in double figures and they shot 53 percent from the floor as a team in the win.

Both teams have grown a lot since then and this is shaping up to be the premier matchup of all the Sweet 16 games. Lachlan McLean of ESPN 680 joins KSTV to take an early look at what it will take for Kentucky to beat UCLA on Friday.
