A familiar face will stand in the way of Kentucky’s attempt to win its first NCAA Tournament game since 2019 when the sixth-seeded Wildcats take on the 11th-seeded Providence Friars in Greensboro, North Carolina, on Friday in an East Region Round of 64 matchup.

Bryce Hopkins, who played for the Wildcats last season, will be leading the Friars into battle against his former team after transferring to Providence after just one season in Lexington.
