NEW ORLEANS – Join Kernel writers Metz Camfield and James Pennington for tonight’s live chat of UK’s second round game between UK and Wake Forest.
UK, led by a career-high 29 points from freshman guard Eric Bledsoe, defeated 16-seeded East Tennessee State on Thursday, 100-71. Ninth-seeded Wake Forest took down Texas in their first round matchup, 81-80 in overtime. Senior guard Ishmael Smith provided the dramatics for the Demon Deacons with a jumper in the waning seconds to give Wake Forest the win.
One of the key matchups to watch tonight will be the rebounding battle between Wake Forest forward Al-Farouq Aminu and UK forward DeMarcus Cousins.
So join in, send us questions or comments and enjoy the game.
