Kentucky Wildcats Begin Exhibition Play Tonight [VIDEO]
I'm getting kind of excited. As you may know, I'm a HUGE college basketball fan. And if it's a team in Kentucky they have my support. Of course, I love my Western Kentucky Hilltoppers. And, trust me, I'm well aware that it's practically "impossible" to support both UK and Louisville, but somehow I manage. But it's November and the season is here. And tonight, the Wildcats begin exhibition play against Transylvania. Let's hope the 'Cats amp it up and really give us a preview of things to come when the two-game exhibition season comes to an end and the games start counting. Head coach John Calipari wasn't particularly pleased with what he saw in the recent Blue-White Game. I'd like to chalk it up to the players not taking it very seriously because it was just a scrimmage. And there was a lot in that game the fans enjoyed--sophomore Terrence Jones, for example, lit it up for 52 points. But Coach Cal wanted to see real play--good defense, offensive sets, that sort of thing--not a pick-up game. And the Transylvania Pioneers--despite the fact that this IS an exhibition game--are going to want to come into Rupp Arena and win the game. I mean, after all, the Transy-UK series is tied at 7 wins apiece. Of course, the last time these two teams played was more than 100 years ago, but a series record is a series record. (100 years?!? Transy's IN Lexington! But, anyway...) The Pioneers will have their game faces on. The 'Cats will need to do the same. College basketball is here! I love it!
