In-state rivals Kentucky and Louisville meet for the fifth time in the NCAA tournament on Saturday night as the two programs open the 2012 Final Four.
The two teams split the previous four NCAA tournament meetings but Kentucky has won 18 of the 29 overall games in the series, including a 69-62 win on Dec. 31.
A lot of bad blood has always existed between Kentucky and Louisville due to geography, and the mutual dislike of coaches John Calipari and Rick Pitino has only served to boost the animosity in recent years.
Game Time: 6:09 p.m. ET, Saturday, March 31
Location: Mercedes-Benz Superdome, New Orleans, LA
TV Schedule: CBS
Betting Odds: Kentucky favored by 8.5 points
@ Kentucky Wildcats
