When two programs like Indiana and Kentucky clash in the NCAA Tournament, the result is going to leave one of two basketball-crazed fan bases in a state of complete despair. The stakes were even higher on Saturday in Des Moines, with the winner going on to the Sweet 16 in the East Region and the loser having a conference championship season end before the tournament’s second weekend.
Indiana’s 73-67 win left Hoosier fans elated. The crushing disappointment on the other side of the floor, including in the Kentucky band section, has created yet another moment of March Sadness.
