Very Large Game Tonight

This game has become KY's biggest rival on the schedule outside of the Louisville game. Can Billy G out coach Billy D? Will we be able to contain Calathes? Will Meeks break lose? Will KY be able to stop a team from hitting three's? Will KY's super frosh DeAndre Liggins step up? I must admit I don't have a lot of confidence we'll pull this one out; too many questions regarding this KY team. If we do - we're tied for 1st place in the SEC East. Go Cats! FLORIDA at KENTUCKY
When: 9 p.m.; Tuesday, Feb. 10
Where: Rupp Arena; Lexington, Ky.
TV: ESPN
Radio: Big Blue Radio Network
Last Season: Jan. 19 - @FLA 81, UK 70 (OT); Mar. 9 - @UK 75, FLA 70
Records: Florida (19-4, 6-2); Kentucky (16-7, 5-3)

I think you mean "very, very" large game tonight.

I think we take this one. Historically, these are the type of games that UK shows up for. Our backs are against the wall, and we've had a week to prepare and to dwell on three straight losses, a rarity in Lexington. Plus, we have a national audience (see: Tennessee game from this year).

If they can't win this game, we might as well start looking forward to football season and how our 2009 basketball recruits are going to help us (and whether Meeks and/or Patterson stay). Because we won't be going to the tourney this year.

Cats gotta win this one.
