Indiana-Kentucky crushed TV ratings last weekend


The second round game between No. 5 Indiana and No. 4 Kentucky was the most-watched game of the NCAA Tournament last weekend, with nearly 10.5 million people tuning in according to Twitter.

This isn’t at all a surprise, as Kentucky is one of the most polarizing programs in college basketball and fans will always tune in to a game where John Calipari could potentially suffer an early tournament exit. Moreover, Indiana was a highly talented team that beat the odds this year and vaulted to the top of the Big Ten, winning the conference’s regular season crown.

But let’s not forget that the game between the Hoosiers and the Wildcats was a down-and-out barnburner, with lead changes galore and Indiana coming out on top despite strong efforts from Kentucky guards Tyler Ulis and Jamal Murray. The problem was that nobody else on the Wildcats was producing that night, thus giving Indiana a 73-67 victory and a date with No. 1 North Carolina in the Sweet Sixteen on Friday.

Tip-off in Philadelphia on Friday night is slated for 9:57 p.m. ET on TBS, so be sure to tune in.
