In arguably the most captivating game of a thrilling first NCAA tournament weekend, No. 8 seed Kentucky made a series of clutch free throws in the final minutes to hold off top-seeded Wichita State. Kentucky will play in-state rival Louisville in the Sweet 16 on Friday in Indianapolis.

In other games, Jarnell Stokes had 17 points and a career-high-tying 18 rebounds, and Tennessee denied Mercer a second straight upset. And Dwight Powell had 15 points and seven rebounds and No. 10 seed Stanford wrapped up its second straight upset at the free throw line.
