On March 28, the Kentucky Wildcats upset the heavily favored Louisville Cardinals by a score of 74-69. By moving on to the Elite 8, they dashed Louisville’s hopes for a repeat national title. On the same day, the Michigan Wolverines, a No. 2 seed, barely pulled out a victory and beat the No. 11 Tennessee Volunteers by a score of 73-71 to advance to the next level. On Sunday night, Kentucky will take on Michigan to determine the winner of the Midwest Region. As noted by Time on March 29, Sunday’s game will be their first meeting since the Wolverines won by an overtime score of 81-78 in the 1993 national semi-finals.

On Friday, Kentucky topped the Louisville reigning champions to advance to the Elite 8. Other wins during the 2014 NCAA Tournament include previously undefeated Wichita State and Kansas State. Michigan also won, barely defeating Tennessee, with earlier wins against Texas and Wofford.

As posted by Mlive.com on Saturday, the Michigan Wolverines are two-point underdogs in their Elite 8 game against Kentucky. Brendan Quinn wrote:

Seeding be damned, the money is with Kentucky. Despite sitting as the No. 2 seed in the Midwest Region with a 28-8 record and 2013 Final Four pedigree, Michigan is a 2-point underdog to No. 8 seed Kentucky in the Elite Eight.

College Spun gives a slight edge to Kentucky and posted on March 29:

Michigan can absolutely win this one, but they’ll need another spectacular effort from Jordan Morgan, as he will have to deal with not only Julius Randle, but Dakari Johnson, who is coming on very strong. Between Randle, Johnson, and the Harrison twins, who have been playing inspired basketball as well, I believe that Kentucky will keep it rolling, and will return to the Final Four for a showdown with either Arizona or Wisconsin.

Fans can expect a great game from both teams in a tournament that Bleacher Report dubbed, “one of the most exciting sporting events of the year thus far.”
