After a strong showing at the SEC Tournament, the UK basketball team was projected with a likely worst-case scenario of a six-seed in the NCAA Tournament. But those projections were way off.

UK landed as the eighth-seed in what appears to be a loaded Midwest Region and will face ninth-seed Kansas State Friday night in St. Louis at 9:40pm.

Here is UK’s entire region, which presents them with a potential second game with 34-0 Wichita State and a Sweet Sixteen matchup with rival Louisville.
