Today marks the 54th anniversary of the 1958 NCAA basketball Championship won by the Kentucky Wildcats. It was the fourth and final championship won by legendary Head Coach Adolph Rupp. The Wildcats have won three more NCAA titles since then, and are working on their 8th National Championship as they enter the Sweet 16 on Friday against another iconic program, Indiana. Their game will be held at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.

Only UCLA has won more NCAA titles (11) than Kentucky. The Wildcats' opponent, Indiana, is third in Championships with five all-time in school history (tied with North Carolina). The Wildcats seem to be the favorites to win this year, and raise another banner at Rupp Arena.
