TIMES ANNOUNCED FOR BOYS’ SWEET 16® SEMIFINALS AND CHAMPIONSHIP
Game times for the Semifinals and Championship of the 2013 Boys’ Sweet 16® at Rupp Arena have been finalized. The Semifinal round will begin at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 9, followed by the championship game at 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 10.
The change in format from previous year’s tournaments was a necessary byproduct of the University of Kentucky hosting Florida at 12 p.m. on March 9.

Official times and pairings will be posted following the Sweet 16® Draw Show on Friday, Jan. 25.
