The Cats are in Atlanta

Your University of Kentucky Wildcats have arrived in lovely Atlanta, Ga., where they will play in the NCAA tournament on Thursday (and hopefully Saturday).

The team will practice in Phillips Arena tomorrow afternoon, but a REMINDER: The practice is not open to the public. In years past it has been open to fans; it will not be tomorrow. However, the media will be allowed in for 15 minutes so we’ll try to relay everything we see back to you.

UK players and John Calipari will also be available for questions Wednesday afternoon, which we will stream here on Kentucky-Sports-Radio-dot-com at 2 pm. Plan accordingly.

In the meantime, just know the Cats have touched down in the ATL and they’re ready to continue their run toward San Antonio.

Let’s. Go.

    Hopefully the good juju of Catlanta is still alive and well for this team.

    Can someone explain why practice is closed after being open for fans for so many years. Thanks

      Well, this isn’t the SEC Tourney, where every team knows and has played every other team. An open practice prior to an NCAA matchup against a team that hasn’t played you ever, or even one that’s only played you a couple times in history, means somebody Cal doesn’t want in there could probably sneak in, and possibly even record something.

      Kevin, it’s an NCAA thing not a Cal thing. And usually the open practice is more like a shoot around anyways

      I think it’s like that for every team

    Yes it’s all teams, I believe it’s something NCAA has done but what’s new there always messing something up.

    Oscar Combs had the best and most hilarious explanation. NCAA determined they couldn’t sell enough hot dogs at open practices to offset the cost of security so if the NCAA wasn’t making money, then they canceled it. Too funny Oscar!

      The really sad thing is, that’s likely not far from the truth. :/
