Kentucky vs. Kansas State: Live Score, Highlights and Reaction for Round of 64

Zach Dirlam@Zach_DirlamSenior Analyst IIMarch 22, 2014

Kentucky 56, Kansas State 49 - Final Score

The matchup college basketball pundits have been salivating over is finally set. With its victory over ninth-seeded Kansas State on Friday night, eighth-seeded Kentucky will take on undefeated Wichita State, the No. 1 seed in the Midwest Region, on Sunday. 

Kentucky dominated the game at the defensive end of the floor. It consistently frustrated Kansas State, which shot just 35.8 percent from the field, with its length and size in the post and on the perimeter. 

Big man Julius Randle recorded a double-double with 19 points and 15 rebounds, while freshman guard Aaron Harrison also added 18 points on 6-of-10 shooting. 

Kansas State is known for its defense, but Kentucky struggled to knock down much of anything offensively. The Wildcats took mostly jump shots and were only able to attack the paint in spurts. This led to Kentucky's sub-par 19-of-50 performance from the field.

On a potentially disappointing note, point guard Andrew Harrison left the game with less than two minutes to play with an apparent arm injury. The extent of his injury is unknown at this time.
