In what would have been the biggest upset so far, Wofford's upset bid fell just short against Kentucky on Saturday as the Wildcats held on for a 62-56 win in Jacksonville, Florida.

Kentucky advances to the Sweet Sixteen where they will face the winner of tonight's contest between Ohio State and Houston.

Fans back home in Spartanburg, South Carolina had a lot to cheer for as the Terriers went into the lockeroom down just two at the half and. It was a one possession game with under two minutes to play.

Wofford was paced by Nathan Hoover, who finished the game with 19 points.

Kentucky was plagued with foul trouble the entire second half. They were led by Reid Travis' 14 points.
