Its time for the Game that all Cats fans want to win a great deal. With snow blanketing the Bluegrass state, all eyes will be locked in on Rupp Arena as the Cats try and take out the Gators and in the process, lock up a berth in the NCAA Tournament. This is an interesting game for a number of reasons, ranging from the Gators’ win streak over the Cats to the return to Rupp of two who spurned UK, Billy Donovan and Jai Lucas. But more than anything, this game is an ode to two Seniors who have given a great deal to this University and program, Ramel Bradley and Joe Crawford. Their careers have been all over the map, seeing the high of a ball bouncing on the rim from the Final Four, to the lows of a loss to Gardner Webb and San Diego. But over time, this twosome has become beloved in UK circles and their final trip onto Rupp’s floor is sure to be an emotional one.
I will be doing the pregame for the game on 1300 AM in Lexington beginning at 9 AM. It will be a big show, with a number of guests by phone and Gregg Doyel hanging out in the studio beginning at 10. So tune in to listen and come on here after the game for a ton of postgame tidbits and conversation. Tomorrow will be a great day at Rupp Arena and I for one cant wait to watch the festivities. I say Cats 69-63….bring it home guys!
