Let’s start the morning off right and congratulate the UK Hoops team for advancing to the third round of the SEC tournament. Game 1 for the Cats looked to be a tad daunting as they were forced to take on an Auburn squad that beat them last week to close out conference play. The Wildcats responded well in the revenge game and sent the Tigers home with a 65-54 win. The Cats take on Mississippi State tonight at 6:00pm and the game is on ESPNU.
