To preview Saturday’s Kentucky-Indiana second round matchup in the East Regional of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, I talked with three reporters covering the action here at the Wells Fargo Arena.

Alex Bozich runs the Inside the Hall website that covers Indiana basketball. Alex gave a scouting report on the Hoosiers, how Indiana changed its season and what Tom Crean’s club will have to do Saturday to have a chance to knock off Kentucky and advance to Philadelphia.

Pat Forde of Yahoo Sports covered the Big 10 Tournament and has seen both the Hoosiers and Cats play in person this season. Pat talks about the matchups and how we’re lucky the NCAA Selection Committee got the two teams together since the rivals no longer schedule each other.

Mark Story, my colleague at the Herald-Leader, joins me to go over the matchups and talk about what Kentucky must do to beat Indiana and move on to a possible Sweet 16 showdown with No. 1 seed North Carolina.

KENTUCKY VS. INDIANA

When: Saturday, 5:15 p.m.
