UPDATED ON 04/13/2015 AT 12:20 PM (EASTERN): We thought there would be one more episode of This is Kentucky Basketball to finish the sixth season (the TV guide showed there would be), but it turns out that last week’s episode, S06E19, was the finale.
The sixth season of This is Kentucky Basketball covers the 2014-2015 basketball team and features such players as The Harrison Twins, Karl Towns, Trey Lyles, and Willie Cauley-Stein to name a few. This season’s format is a bit different than seasons past (more on that below), but the videos offer highlights of UK’s games, interviews with current and past players, coaching tips, Coach Cal’s pregame thoughts to the team, and lots lots more. They are definitely worth watching if you’re a true UK basketball fan.
This season will be hosted by Jennifer Palumbo. It appears that each week she will be the main host and she will be joined by a UK player acting as the co-host.
“This is Kentucky Basketball” is Coach John Calipari’s coaches show. The show offers Kentucky fans an inside glimpse into the life of the players and coaches. Fans also get to see players host the shows, highlights of games synced up to the Tom Leach & Mike Pratt radio broadcasts, behind the scenes of the pre-game and post game locker room messages from the coaches and assistant coaches, player interviews, and lots more. Most of the player interviews include some random/silly questions that help to draw out the personalities of the players.
Each season of This is Kentucky Basketball begins around the start of December and goes until March/April–depending on how far the team makes it in the tournament.

Archiving This is Kentucky Basketball
Do you want to download and archive the shows for later/offline viewing? No problem. Follow these easy steps.
1. Right-click the title text of the game you want to download (the text just underneath the thumbnail) then left-click the option to copy the URL. In Chrome and Firefox this option is called “Copy link address” and “Copy link location” respectively. Internet Explorer will say something along the lines of “Copy Shortcut.”
2. Navigate to the KeepVid website. Once the site has loaded, paste the URL you copied from step 1 into their text box and then hit the “DOWNLOAD” button. Note: you’ll need Java installed to use this site, and you will be prompted to install it if Java isn’t on your machine.
3. You should get a prompting to allow Java to run. Allow it. Now you will be at a page that provides you with multiple download options. Click on your preferred resolution and file format and the file will start downloading to your PC.
Once finished downloading, the file should open in your favorite media player, but if you have issues getting it to play, I recommend trying these players in this order: VLC Media Player, Media Player Classic Home Cinema (MPC-HC), and Windows Media Player.
****Check back on Sunday afternoons throughout the rest of the basketball season for new shows to appear.
