The 2017 Elite Eight will be set following Friday's regional semifinal action in the NCAA Tournament.

The marquee matchup will see second-seeded Kentucky face third-seeded UCLA in the South Region in Memphis. The two blue bloods met earlier this season, with the Bruins beating the Wildcats 97-92 on the road.

The winner could face No. 1 seed North Carolina on Sunday, though the Tar Heels will need to get past Butler first.

The East Region - the one that busted so many brackets during opening weekend - will also pick its finalists on Friday.

South Carolina, fresh off a stunner of Duke, will play third-seeded Baylor. Wisconsin will look to follow up on an upset win over top-seeded Villanova when it faces Florida.
