When Indiana and Kentucky met in October, the Wildcat defense seemed impenetrable as the squads played to a 0-0 double overtime draw in Bloomington six weeks ago.
Meeting again on Sunday in the NCAA Tournament, freshman Victor Bezerra found all of the holes.
Bezerra didn’t get off a shot in the first meeting, but when it counted the most the Chicago native found the back of the net three times.
BEZERRA GOING BERSERK!

Bezerra scored at the 20:44, 29:34 and 62:27 marks as Indiana had 12 shots (7 on goal) to 7 for Kentucky (4 on goal).
The three goals from Bezerra were the only scores for the match as Indiana won its NCAA Tournament opener 3-0 at Armstrong Stadium in Bloomington.
Indiana (15-2-4) will face UC Santa Barbara on Dec. 1 in the round of sixteen at Armstrong Stadium.
