A Boring Start to the Tournament
Usually one of the first two days of the tournament is uneventful. That day was yesterday. There were only two upsets by seed, No. 11 Xavier over No. 6 Maryland and No. 12 Middle Tennessee over No. 5 Minnesota, yet Richy P’s team was considered the underdog by Vegas. If it weren’t for Vandy’s stupidity, we’d have nothing to talk about today. Surely today will not be as uneventful as yesterday.
13 Hours Till Tip-Off
That was a miserable headline to type. It’s nice to watch a few other teams play before the Cats, but playing the one of the final games of the first round is pure hell. At least there’s basketball to watch while you’re waiting (and a link to watch them all).
What Cal Expects from NKU
We’ll have a scouting report and more on the Norse throughout the day, but John Calipari summarized it pretty well during yesterday’s pregame press conference.
“They have a five man that can shoot 3s,” John Calipari said. “Their guards are not afraid. They’ll shoot 3s. They’ll fly up and down the court. They run good stuff in the half court. They space the court. Their pick-and-roll stuff is good.
Their man-to-man is more of a let’s make sure you’re going to take a tough shot, and we’re going to rebound and run. They do play a 2-3 zone. I’ve seen a little bit of 1-3-1. Run good out-of-bounds plays on the baseline. John’s done a good job. They’ve won (24) games. This is a legitimately good team.”
What’s a Norse?

Tonight’s Matchup by the Numbers
KY Wildcats TV is on their A-Game
I don’t know if they give awards for awesome videos, but if they do, KY Wildcats TV should get all of the awards. The practice video has me bopping, before the hype video has me ready to rip apart phonebooks.

Kentucky Women Open NCAA Tournament at Home
Matthew Mitchell’s fourth-seeded squad starts their tournament journey today at noon at Memorial Coliseum against the OVC Champions, 13-seed Belmont. After incurring a few injuries at the SEC Tournament, the team used the week off to get healthy.
If you’re in the state of Kentucky and the surrounding region, you can watch the game on ESPN2. If you’re outside of the region, it’s available on Watch ESPN. Even better, you can watch them play in person by purchasing tickets at www.ukathletics.com/ncaatickets.
Sweet 16 Quarterfinals
Just like the NCAA Tournament, the first day failed to produce many exciting matchups. That changed yesterday when Collins and Elliot County went to overtime, before Collins pulled away for a 65-57 victory. Meade County’s magical run cam to end against Cooper, Ballard rolled Taylor County and Fern Creek showed they could be the team to beat by dominating Hopkinsville.
The day starts with a matchup that could produce this year’s state champion and ends with a battle that will determine who’s the best in the city of Louisville.
- Noon: Scott County vs. Bowling Green
- 1:30: Scott vs. Perry County Central
- 6:30: Collins vs. Cooper
- 8:00: Fern Creek vs. Ballard
AD’s UK Starting Five
Anthony Davis shared his favorite five former Wildcats and was humbled enough to leave his name off the list.
