Kansas State plays a physical game and Kentucky is, well, Kentucky, so the refs will probably be a factor tonight. Who are those refs? Chris Rastatter, Jamie Luckie, and Earl Walton.
If you’re like me, the only name you recognize of those is Luckie. The Cats are 21-8 in games officiated by Luckie, the most recent being Kentucky’s loss at South Carolina back in January. You may remember Luckie from his technical on Bam Adebayo for hanging on the rim vs. Hofstra last season.
Let’s try not to give them too much material.
