Oakland vs. Kentucky: How to watch, TV channel, streaming, start time, injury report and stats

No. 3 Kentucky faces off against No. 14 Oakland on Thursday night in the South Region of the men's bracket.

Kentucky (23-9) boasts one of the best offenses in the country, but must overcome recent tournament despair to rejuvenate the program. John Calipari's team has just two tournament appearances and one win since 2019, including a first-round loss to No. 15 Saint Peter's in 2022.

Oakland (23-11) are Horizon League champions for the first time since 2011. The Golden Grizzlies are making their fourth tournament appearance since moving to Division I in 1999, and are led by the longest-serving head coach in DI men's basketball in Greg Kampe.
