When thinking about the programs with the most success in NCAA Tournament history, two names immediately come to mind – and UCLA. The Bruins have won a record 11 NCAA Tournament titles, while Kentucky has won eight titles, as well as more tournament games than any other school (tied with North Carolina).

The Cats and the Bruins meet on the hardwood on Saturday in New York's Madison Square Garden as part of the 2022 CBS Sports Classic. North Carolina and Ohio State meet in the other contest.

Kentucky owns an 8-7 advantage over UCLA all-time. The teams have split the last two meetings in the CBS Sports Classic. UCLA has won three of the last five meetings in the series.

UK head coach has been impressed with what he has seen from Mick Cronin's Bruins so far this season.
