Kentucky will play Washington in the semifinals of the EA Sports Maui Invitational tonight in Hawaii. UK advanced with a 76-64 first round win over Oklahoma, while Washington put away Virginia in the final first round win of the day. UConn and Michigan State meet in the other semifinal.
The only other time Kentucky faced Washington was in the 1985 NCAA Tournament when UK downed the Deitleif Schrimpf-led Huskies 66-58 in what was the final week of the Joe B. Hall tenure at UK.
