Kentucky is No. 18 in postseason AP poll


The Associated Press released its new poll for college basketball’s postseason and your University of Kentucky Wildcats earned the No. 18 slot in the Top 25.

The Wildcats were unranked at this time last week, having just dropped the regular season finale at Florida. The SEC Tournament bumped Kentucky’s point total from 66 to 528 in the voting.

    So Arizona should have been a 3 seed and in cincy’s half of west.

  2. BigBlueNationDude

    Why couldnt texas tech or wichita have been our 4? Ayton is gonna eat on us

    1. CatsfaninFL

      Just like you thought we’d be awful all year and not make the tourney? Just asking for a friend

    2. secrick

      What we need are some seniors on this team like the Cards have , oh wait they are in the nit with all those seniors. Go yell for your team.

    3. Beavis

      Have you seen Texas Tech play ? When healthy they will be all any team in this tourny will want. Evans is a dynamite point and Zack Smith is getting healthy again. Trust me, you don’t want them in your bracket.

  3. Ben27

    I am sick of hearing about Ayton. One player is not going to beat us. We can only beat ourselves. Lets just keep playing and improving from the SEC Tournament and teams will have to worry about us. We have turned the corner and i will bet on Cal every time. time to enjoy the rest of the season.

  4. Shagaris Sock Puppet

    Its the big dance. you play who advances and is in your face. Assuming gets you nowhere. All the fake a$$ fans who jumped ship months ago, quit acting like Arizona cant be beaten. We have great guard play, 4 men hitting 3s and freshmen hitting their strides. Stay confident and take it one game at a time. If not there is no enjoying this. Much like most fans didnt enjoy this year because the team wasnt on our learning curve.

  5. BobKYCats

    I’m actually relieved to potentially be playing Arizona rather than Wichita St. Both times we’ve played them have almost put me in the hospital.

    1. henderblue

      But. Wichita St can’t beat us. They are overrated…Arizona is much better than the Shockers. But they can be beat and will go down Saturday. Assuming we beat Davidson

    2. Miller45

      anybody can beat anybody on any given day sir. I dont care which conference it is no team that wins their conference are scrubs and one off night can send you packing.

  6. BBNDan7

    Saint Mary’s is ranked and not in the tournament…

    1. cats646

      Yea. That’s absolutely ridiculous.

    2. cats646

      Of course, so are the rankings most of the time.

  7. TJY

    I’ve said it everywhere else so I might as well say it here…Ayton does NOT run the floor. He jogs down the floor. How can they play us 4 on 5? If they get into their half court set, he is a beast but we have more length than almost every team in the nation…let’s use it.

    I was wanting to avoid Mich/MSU because they are very physical (despite us being more physical lately) and Villanova because we seem to always struggle against 4 guard teams. I’m happy with our draw…bring them all on! CATS > Field

  8. Big Meech

    Don’t we play Davidson, what’s all this Arizona talk

  9. KYjellyRoll

    Gonna say it now, Kentuckys length on defense is causing opposing teams+coach massive problems…
