The Kentucky Wildcats and North Carolina Tar Heels have delivered memorable games since John Calipari arrived in Lexington and Saturday’s matchup in Chicago should be another one.


North Carolina opened as a 4.5 point favorite over Kentucky in a game the Wildcats desperately need to improve their overall body of work before conference play.



The Wildcats will have plenty of opportunities to claim quality wins in SEC play but this team needs a marquee win to build some confidence. A win tomorrow at the United Center will do just that.


Tip-off is set for 5:15 p.m. ET. on CBS.
