LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - UK will not face UCLA in the CBS Sports Classic on Saturday in Cleveland, Ohio. Instead the Cats will take on #22 North Carolina (4-2).

UCLA (5-1), from the PAC-12 will now face #20 Ohio State (5-1), from the Big Ten, at 4:15 p.m.
The Cats (1-4) and Tar Heels will play at 2 p.m. in Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse.
