But Kentucky just sent the Louisville Cardinals home from the 2014 NCAA Tournament and it’s a party in Big Blue Nation. After trailing throughout the entire game, UK dug deep and found…

Three weeks ago in South Carolina, a teary-eyed Aaron Harrison told reporters that this season was still going to be a “great story.” His words rang a bit hollow during the low point of the season, but tonight, after one of the greatest basketball games I’ve ever witnessed, I’m not only seeing that story, I’m…

SEC Championship, here we come. UK’s 70-58 win over Georgia wasn’t quite as thrilling as last night’s victory over LSU, but it’s the second good game in a row for the Cats, and earns them another shot at #1 Florida. Let’s go over some notes, then go celebrate. The tweak got a bit streaky, but…
