Thursday at 7:00 PM (Eastern) the Kentucky Wildcats (22-9, 12-6 SEC) open up SEC tournament play in CATlanta, Georgia against the LSU Tigers (19-12, 9-9 SEC), who knocked off Alabama earlier tonight by a score of 86-56. If you’ve been watching any of the SEC games today and yesterday, you’ll see that the Big Blue Nation has taken over and they’re expecting a sell-out for tomorrow’s UK game. I haven’t seen a Vegas line out yet for the game, but I’ll update this post once I hear of one. UPDATE: The Vegas line has UK winning by 4.5 points.

Our favorite place to discuss all things UK basketball with fellow CAT fans is over at CatsIllustrated. There are normally a few thousand people online during games and usually 1,000+ people online on days where there aren’t any games. There are topics about all things UK basketball here. I must warn you though, people can get extremely crazy after a UK loss.
