UNC vs. Ohio State

Kentucky is 4-4 all-time in the CBS Sports Classic and beat North Carolina last season. The Wildcats were originally scheduled to play Ohio State last season but both the Buckeyes and UCLA were forced to cancel due to COVID-19 issues. Kentucky last played UCLA in the series during 2017, an 83-75 Bruins victory.
The 2022 edition will be the first time the CBS Sports Classic is played at Madison Square Garden. It was most recently played at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
