Indiana-Kentucky series coming to an end
Last year, the border-state rivals played two of the season’s most memorable games — Indiana’s 73-72 win in Bloomington and a 102-90 shootout at the NCAA’s regional semifinals in Atlanta, which served as a springboard for Kentucky’s latest title run.
The Hoosiers and Wildcats also have met three other times in postseason play since 1969, all on neutral courts. Kentucky is 3-1 in the four postseason meetings.
These are two of the nation’s most prestigious basketball schools. Both are ranked among the nation’s top 15 programs in victories, with Kentucky topping the list. Only UCLA (11) has won more national titles than the Wildcats (eight) and those are the only two programs that have more championship banners than Indiana (five). North Carolina also has won five national titles.
The schools played four times from 1924 to 1928, then didn’t meet again until 1940. After Indiana lost its second straight in the series, in 1944, the teams met only one other time (1965) before the series restarted in 1969.
