The basketball season is here! The annual Kentucky basketball midnight madness event, dubbed Big Blue Madness, takes place tonight at 7:00 PM (ET) and will be shown live in its entirety on national television for the first time ever as the SEC Network has picked up the coverage. There is also a pre-show event ran by the WKYT people that will air locally from 5:30 – 7:00 PM (ET)–see the live stream links page for more on that. UK fans were able to get a small taste of the team this past Sunday as their NBA combine practice was aired on TV, but of course BBM is the official start of basketball for most fans.
Check back on the site shortly after the game for a replay to appear–we’ll make a new post when it is ready.
