We are one day away from Kentucky’s seventh Sweet 16 appearance in nine years. As we speak, Mrs. Tyler Thompson and Drew Franklin are on the road to Catlanta. They’ll be inside Philips Arena at 2:05 when John Calipari and select players take the podium. Unfortunately, the practice that follows will not be open to the public, but Mrs. T and Drew will let you know what went down.
While they make their way down I-75 South, the team touched down in Georgia yesterday.
