Baylor vs. Kentucky: Bears, Wildcats square off in March Madness rematch

Cooper Neill

The Baylor Bears square off with the Kentucky Wildcats, the team that eliminated them from last year's NCAA Tournament.

The Baylor Bears face the team that sent them packing eight months ago as they head to Rupp Arena to take on the Kentucky Wildcats. It'd be tough to call it a revenge game though, as both teams look drastically different from last season. Baylor guards Pierre Jackson and Brady Heslip are the only starters for either team that are back from last year.

Both teams aren't off to the same starts as last year. The 4-2 Bears are unranked and coming off a stunning loss to the College of Charleston last Saturday. Jackson in particular is looking for a bounce back game after scoring 21 points on 21 shots. The big question mark for the Bears is the availability of Heslip, who is still recovering from an emergency appendectomy ten days ago. Heslip is a game time decision.

Meanwhile, the Wildcats are coming off a road loss to the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. The Wildcats are starting an entirely new starting five from last year's championship squad, mostly comprising of freshman. Tip-off from Rupp Arena is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. CT and is being broadcast on CBS.
