Kentucky Survives Princeton & Advances To The Third Round

Kentucky's Brandon Knight made his only basket from the field count as it gave his Wildcats, the 4th seed in the East region, a 59-57 win over the pesky Tigers of Princeton, the 13th seed, to advance to the third round of the 2011 NCAA Tournament. It was a grinder throughout at the St. Pete Times Forum in Tampa as the Tigers played a very smart and efficient ballgame to stay close. But it's the Wildcats advancing to face off with the #5 seeded West Virginia Mountaineers, who defeated Clemson earlier today, on Saturday aftenroon (round 3 TV schedule).
Ian Eagle and Jim Spanarkel have the recap.
