Morgantown, West Virginia – The #2 seeded Kentucky Wildcats were upset by the 15th seeded Saint Peter’s Peacocks of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference, 85-79!
Number 15 seeds are only 9-135 against No. 2 seeds since 1985 in the NCAA Tournament, so this is a truly massive upset.
Oscar Tshiebwe was dominant in the loss, finishing the game with 30 points and 16 rebounds. It’s now unclear whether Tshiebwe, a junior, will return for another season at Kentucky, or if he will declare for the NBA Draft.
