The Kentucky Wildcats face the Davidson Wildcats in the 2018 NCAA Tournament on Thursday, March 15. Here’s all the info you need to watch.
Head coach John Calipari has created something special and unique with the Kentucky Wildcats program. They are an NBA factory with a huge track record of success. However, they also have success when it comes to the college ranks, which is what he’s hoping to bring forth in the 2018 NCAA Tournament. Having said that, they won’t have a cake-walk out of the gate as a First Round matchup with the Davidson Wildcats looms on Thursday, March 15 in Boise, ID.
Kentucky, led by a group of freshman that are headlined by Kevin Knox, has all the talent in the world. They are deep and they are able to play whatever style you want. More importantly, though, they are hitting their stride. After early-season struggles and inconsistency, they enter March Madness off of winning the SEC Tournament and as one of the hotter teams in the country.
While that may be so, Davidson is arguably the best 12-seed on the bracket. Led by star forward Peyton Aldridge, this team is 100 percent legitimate and they have a coach in Bob McKillop who knows what to do when it comes to the NCAA Tournament. Put simply, they’re dangerous for UK and any team set before them.
Thus, this is one matchup you’ll want to keep up with from start to finish. Fans can watch the box score below and can find the game info below that on this page.

For much of this season, this Kentucky team has fallen well short of expectations. But as Calipari’s teams often do, they are peaking at the right time as they head into the NCAA Tournament. Now the question is whether or not they are able to get past a Davidson team that won’t be an easy out by any stretch of the imagination.
