Buffalo star Wes Clark eager to rewrite his history as Bulls take on Kentucky

BOISE, Idaho — Wes Clark had just starred in one of the most stunning beatdowns by an underdog in NCAA Tournament history — 13th-seeded Buffalo’s 21-point shellacking of fourth-seeded Arizona — but his eyes were already on the next line of the bracket late Thursday night.

“Oh, man, I got a lot of history with them Kentucky guys,” he said. “I’m trying to redeem myself a little bit, get back to what I know, and just embrace the same opportunity we had tonight. I done played [Kentucky] a lot and they done dominated me. I ain’t feeling too good about that, so I got a little chip on my shoulder. I gotta go at them boys.”

Buffalo (27-8) will play No. 5 seed Kentucky (25-10) in the second round Saturday night, and Clark hopes it will go a bit better than his previous meetings with the Wildcats. Formerly a point guard at Missouri, he went 0-4 against UK, including three losses by at least 16 points.
