Kentucky Basketball fans have a little bit of breathing room now that the Wildcats have reached the Sweet 16.

The Big Blue Nation held it’s breath in the final second of Kentucky Basketball’s victory over Wichita State in the round of 32 on Sunday Afternoon. The Wildcats entered the matchup after defeating Northern Kentucky University in a late night slug of a game. After watching the first two rounds of the NCAA Tournament, Kentucky Basketball fans will have time to reflect on the future of the program.
