Kentucky, Houston hold news conferences ahead of Sweet 16 matchup

By  | 

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (WKYT) - The Kentucky Wildcats and Houston Cougars are addressing the media one day before the two teams tip off in the Sweet 16.

The 2-seed Kentucky is a slight favorite against the 3-seed Cougars.

Many questions surround the health of sophomore PJ Washington, as Kentucky's leading scorer and rebounder is continuing to recover from a foot sprain.

Washington tweeted a video showing him walking in basketball shoes, but he was later seen in a walking boot before the team traveled to Kansas City.

The winner of Friday's game will play the winner of North Carolina and Auburn in the Elite Eight. Kentucky was 3-0 against those two teams in the regular season.
