No. 1 seed Kentucky will try to avenge an early-season loss at Indiana tonight in the South regional semifinal.

Indiana handed Kentucky one of its two losses this season on Dec. 10. The 73-72 victory in Assembly Hall ended with a buzzer-beating three-pointer by Christian Watford.

It was Indiana's signature win of the year and one of Kentucky's two blemishes.

Player of the Year candidate Anthony Davis leads an extremely talented Kentucky team. Many have dubbed his John Calipari's most talented team. Whether that's true or not, these Wildcats have been the best team in the country all year. Now they have to keep it going in March.

Kentucky ended up blowing out Western Kentucky and Iowa State, even though the those teams (namely Iowa State) hung around for a little while.

Indiana, on the other hand, hasn't had as easy of a road. After a comfortable victory over New Mexico State, the Hoosiers needed a come-from-behind win against VCU. It was one of the best comebacks in the tournament, if not the best.

These teams are tough, and they know each other. It promises to be a great game.

Be sure to stay tuned for live score updates, reaction and instant analysis.
