Julius Randle had 19 points and 15 rebounds, Aaron Harrison finished with 18 points and No. 8 seed Kentucky beat Kansas State 56-49 to earn a date with top-seeded Wichita State.

The preseason No. 1, Kentucky (25-10) is finally starting to live up to the expectations that came with its heralded recruiting class. John Calipari's bunch nearly knocked of Florida in the SEC title game last week and seemed to carry that momentum into the NCAA tournament Friday night.

Now, the question is whether it will continue on Sunday. The Shockers rolled over Cal Poly to improve to 35-0 earlier in the night.

Marcus Foster had 15 points, Shane Southwell scored 11 and Thomas Gipson finished with 10 for Kansas State (20-13).
