The Wildcats were in the air back to Lexington as the NCAA Tournament bracket was unveiled on television.
But it didn’t take long for the names of potential future opponents to pop up on their phones as the team landed in Lexington. Names like Connecticut, Duke and Indiana.

The players all said it looks like a tough road, even for the tournament’s top team, which will start its bid for an eighth championship in Louisville on Thursday.
