Kyle Wiltjer and Kentucky Are Playing for All Marbles in Tonight's NC-Double-Eh Schedule

Kyle Wiltjer and the entire Big Blue Nation will be looking to get their latest NCAA Championship from a team of hungry Jayhawks tonight in New Orleans ...

Here is where the men are playing today ...


9:30pm Kentucky vs. Kansas

Kyle Wiltjer is in the verge of playing for an NCAA champion tonight. Kentucky had romped through the season and the Tournament it seems the outcome that almost everyone had envisioned for them at the start of the year is within reach. Wiltjer, who was not a huge impact guy as a freshman, has been showing signs of what may come for next season. In the win over Louisville, he had 5 momentum-shifting points, a rebound and a steal in 8 minutes off the bench in the victory. He'll likely not play a whole lot tonight, likely only being inserted early in the game to spell the frontcourt guys for a bit to stretch the defense a little with his deep shooting, but if the Wildcats win tonight he'll still get to be called a champion. And with the team that Kentucky is putting on the floor, there is a very good chance that he'll be the third Canadian NC-Double-Eh-er that will have that title for this season.
