UK seeking Final Four berth

The Kentucky men's basketball team tips off Saturday evening in Cleveland, Ohio, against Notre Dame in the Midwest Region championship game of the NCAA Tournament.

The Wildcats (37-0) are the No. 1 overall seed in the tournament, while the Fighting Irish (32-5) are a No. 3 seed. The winner advances to the Final Four next weekend in Indianapolis, Ind.

Kentucky is seeking the first perfect season in NCAA basketball since the 1976 Indiana Hoosiers. No team in NCAA history has gone a perfect 40-0.

The game is scheduled to begin at 7:49 p.m. on TBS.
