Monumental task awaits NKU in Bluegrass Battle against UK
INDIANAPOLIS (AP/WKRC) - NKU has a monumental task in playing UK on Friday night in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
The school is a first-timer in the NCCA Tournament. It won the Horizon League championship and the league's automatic bid in its first year of eligibility for the tournament. The one-time Division II power made the jump to Division I five years ago.
Now the Norse meet a team rich in tournament history-- 56 appearances for the Wildcats. Included among those are 17 Final Fours and 8 championships. All told, UK is 123-50 in the NCAA Tournament.
