You want the good news or the bad news? The good news is we already know the officials for Wednesday’s game vs. Louisville. The bad news is one of them is Roger Ayers. According to Jeff Greer, Ayers, Jamie Luckie, and Ron Groover will call Wednesday’s game in the Yum Center.
Kentucky is 11-9 in games called by Ayers, the most recent being the Cats’ win over the Tar Heels on Saturday. That was a happy memory, but there have been plenty of bad ones over the years from Ayers, including three technicals on Calipari. You may also remember Ayers as part of the officiating crew that called three technicals on Tyler Ulis, Isaiah Briscoe, and Mississippi State’s I.J. Ready last season in Rupp. Meanwhile, Kentucky is 27-9 in games called by Groover and 18-6 in games called by Luckie.
Hopefully we don’t see any of these perplexing calls on Wednesday:
