The Wildcats and Hoosiers, two very prestigious programs, meet in the Round of 32 on Saturday afternoon.
The Hoosiers had very little problem with Chattanooga, while the Wildcats blew right through Stony Brook in the Round of 64.
Tip is set for 2:15 in Iowa.
Kentucky matched up very well with Stony Brook and they had no trouble dominating the paint as they absolutely dismantled them 85-57.
The Wildcats pulled out to a 14 point lead at the half, holding Stony Brook to just 19 points. They were suffocating on the defensive end, not allowing any easy or open shots.
Kentucky will have a much tougher test here, as the Hoosiers can not only match their intensity, but also their inside presence.
Look for Skal Labissiere and Alex Poythress to be the difference makers here. The duo each had 12 points in the win over Stony Brook and will be needed both offensively and defensively in the paint.
Indiana struggled defensively in the first half against Chattanooga, allowing them to rack up 37 first half points.
However, the Hoosiers offense was clicking on all cylinders. A team that averages 82.8 points per game, Indiana put up 46 in the first half and then 53 in the 2nd to pull away.
In this matchup, it’ll be Thomas Bryant and Troy Williams making the difference. They both played extremely well down low against Chattanooga and really controlled the paint, which is what they’ll need to do here.
Guard wise, it always comes down to Yogi Ferrell when talking about Indiana. Ferrell played exceptionally well in the Round of 64 game, going for 20 points and even grabbing 10 rebounds.
He’ll have to keep up with the Kentucky scorers and really carry this offense, especially early.

This is a game with two teams who have very similar styles of offense.
