Let's get ready to rumble! Basketball season in the Commonwealth of Kentucky gets underway within the hour as the University of Kentucky Wildcats take on the Jackrabbits of South Dakota State in the Guardian Classic at Rupp Arena. I'd like to take this time to give my condolences to Senator Tom Daschle as his alma mater will lose tonight. I'll be saying the same thing to Senator Bayh when the Cats take on the Indiana Hoosiers--and that score should be different from the football score earlier.
Kentucky is starting the season in the top 10 in the AP Top 25 poll and ranked 10th in the ESPN poll. This should be the season!
STARTERS for the KENTUCKY WILDCATS:
