De’Aaron Fox dominated the best individual matchup of the NCAA tournament, leading his Wildcats to a 86-75 victory over UCLA. Fox scored a career-high 39 points in his dominant performance over the Bruins. Meanwhile, Lonzo Ball needed a late dunk to reach double figures.

The win sends Kentucky to the Elite Eight to meet North Carolina. That game is set for 5:05 pm Sunday.

    Win or lose Sunday, the negativity needs to stop. Zach Morris and several other corny soundin’ mf need to quit.

      It’s not just in this site, I never said this team was absolutely gonna go far in the tourney, but I sure as heck wasn’t writing them off like some. Gonna be some haters called out with screenshots. Plenty said that KY wouldn’t make it to 2nd weekend.

    Most impressive performance of the year. Fox was outstanding! Hope we have something left in the tank for Sunday.

    This might be the worst weekend for UCLA since Alford can now announce he’s going to IU.

    The SEC is terrible this year, there are at least 5 teams in the elite 8 from other conferences

    If Lavon Ball’s dad wants to make some money on T-Shirts he should print some that says “Don’t Bad Mouth Kentucky-They Bad”

    Games like these are the best. Close the entire game except the final minutes.

    Have nothing against Lonzo Ball but now his dad can choke on his surname in plural form.

    How about Willis’ 8 rebounds, 4 assists, and a block, plus pretty good defense!

    Wanting to go to the game Sunday. Cheaper to scalp tickets or buy online?

    Swagger Cal needs to talk about the SEC a little more. I think there’s a few people in Siberia who didn’t hear him bragging about the SEC tonight.

    I have no idea how Florida managed to get that win after trying their best to lose in overtime, but I am so incredibly impressed with that shot.

    The SEC won’t get any more respect with the way our teams played, but it sure deserves it.

      And Arkansas got power f’d by the res, or it would be HALF the elite eight.

    Arkansas gave their game to Unc,just imagine how the commentators would’ve had to spin that.
