It's time for the game you've all been waiting all week for! It's Lonzo Ball and the UCLA Bruins against Malik Monk and the Kentucky Wildcats with a berth in the Elite Eight on the line.

UCLA will probably need to play its best defense of the season tonight to beat Kentucky again.

In December, UCLA went into Rupp Arena in Lexington, Kentucky and did something very few teams are able to do: Beat Kentucky at home.

It was one of the biggest games of the season then. Well, it's not anymore. That's because tonight's rematch will be played in Memphis, which, while technically a neutral court, will probably be very pro-UK due to the fact that it's less than 425 miles from Rupp Arena to the FedEx Forum.

Let's just hope that the Bruins aren't slowed down by all that Memphis BBQ come game time!
