The NCAA Selection Committee has made their decision and Kentucky will be a two seed in the Midwest.
The one seed in the Midwest with Kentucky is North Carolina. I would rather be playing in Louisville for the regionals against a one seeded Virginia, but I have faith in our Wildcats.
Kentucky’s first match-up is against #15 Abilene Christian, played in Jacksonville. The regional games for the Midwest will be played in Kansas City.
The benefit of being close to home in the South region goes to Tennessee instead of Kentucky.
The Louisville Cardinals (little brother) is a 7-seed in the East with Duke. They will face Richard Pitino’s team, that should be a great storyline.
Here’s the full Midwest:
