The Kentucky Wildcats are dancing again.

The Wildcats are a 2 seed in the 2019 NCAA Tournament. John Calipari has missed the NCAA Tournament just once in his career and obviously, after another successful season in Lexington, that statement will remain true. Calipari has not won the NCAA Championship since 2012, and now this team will hope to buck that trend.

Kentucky will start their journey to Minneapolis with a matchup against the Abilene Christian Wildcats. The game will take place in Jacksonville Florida on Thursday in the Midwest Region.

The Wildcats’ region features the 3-seeded Houston Cougars, 4-seeded Kansas Jayhawks and 1-seeded North Carolina Tar Heels. It also features the 5-seeded Auburn Tigers, a team UK knows well, the 7-seeded Wofford Terriers and the 10-seeded Seton Hall Pirates, whom of course tagged UK with a loss back in December at Madison Square Garden.
