Whether you watch Wichita State vs Kentucky online free live stream or catch the game live on CBS, it could be one of the best March Madness games of all time. Or at least one of the most hyped. After Wichita State was seeded for the tournament, every sports broadcaster and commentator noted the almost impossible road Wichita State basketball would have to travel to make the Final Four. Today’s Round 2 matchup against Kentucky is one example why.
Wichita State is 35-0 after defeating Cal Poly 64-37 in Round One of the NCAA tournament. The Round One showing was impressive, but the Shockers are still trying to prove their unbeaten regular season record wasn’t a fluke. Today they’re facing Kentucky, which was the preseason No. 1 team in the country and certainly wants to restore “balance” to the world of college basketball rankings. Kentucky’s also looking to avoid a disappointing finish to the season.
The Shockers’ ability to defend on the perimeter and create matchup problems with Kentucky’s Cleanthony Early will be one thing to note as you watch Wichita State vs Kentucky online free live stream. Andrew Harrison’s health is also a big question.
As noted by CBS Sports, “the storylines attached to this Wichita State-Kentucky Round of 32 game make this Wichita State-Kentucky Round of 32 game the most compelling Round of 32 matchup in NCAA Tournament history.
“[W]hat we have here is the nation’s preseason No. 1 team that once had aspirations of 40-0 against the nation’s most-divisive team that’s still very much chasing 40-0. What we have here is the biggest and baddest program in the sport against a member of the Missouri Valley Conference. What we have here is a roster filled with McDonald’s All-Americans and future NBA Draft picks against a roster featuring just one top-100 national recruit.”
And yet the Shockers are still the 3.5-point favorite. This is without question the biggest game of the Tourney so far.
