Tonight’s refs and other opening night tidbits



We are less than one hour from tipoff of Kentucky’s season opener vs. Stephen F. Austin. Tonight’s refs? Joe Lindsay, Vladimir Voyard-Todal, and Rusty Phillips. The Cats have won 83% (54-11) of games officiated by Lindsay, the most recent being Kentucky’s wins over Georgia and Texas A&M in the SEC Tournament.

Other tidbits from UK’s game notes:

  • Kentucky is 94-19 all-time in season openers, including a perfect 7-0 under the direction of John Calipari
  • John Calipari only needs THREE more wins to tie Joe B. Hall for most wins at Rupp as UK’s head coach
  • UK is currently on a 37-game winning streak at Rupp Arena, dating back to 2013-14
  • UK is 62-1 (.984) at home vs. non-conference foes under Calipari. The only loss was against Baylor on Dec. 1, 2012
  • It’s Brad Calipari’s birthday, so let’s hope he gets some buckets during clean-up duty.
