Kentucky vs. Oakland Game Time Announced

Now that we know Kentucky's first opponent in the "Big Dance", we've been anxiously awaiting the tip-time for the Thursday night game in Pittsburgh. The Wildcats are facing the Golden Grizzlies of Oakland in a 4-seed/13-seed matchup in which Kentucky opens as a 12-point favorite in.

It has just been announced that Kentucky will play at 7:10 PM EST on CBS, broadcasted to all the hungriest college basketball fans in the country. It will be taking place this Thursday, March 21st, inside of the PPG Paints Arena in Pennsylvania.

The two featured teams have similar records but vastly different journeys from throughout the season. Kentucky, who is coming off a Quarterfinals loss in the SEC Tournament, is sitting at 23-9 overall facing up to an Oakland basketball team that is 23-11 overall and are coming off a Horizon League Tournament Championship. The Big Blue Nation is desperate for a postseason win and this could be their chance on finding just their second one since the 2019 Sweet Sixteen.
