It’s the morning after Selection Sunday and the 2023 NCAA basketball tournament brackets are set with the Wildcats ready to compete.

The season has been a little shaky at times for both teams. The No. 14 seed women’s team lost 80-71 to No. 3 Tennessee in the quarterfinals of the SEC tournament. And the men lost 80-73 to Vanderbilt in the first round last Friday night.

Here’s when you can catch the Cats in action. Psst... don’t forget to support your team in our favorite merch.
