College Basketball: Battle of the Bluegrass Preview


The annual Battle of the Bluegrass is tomorrow at the KFC Yum Center as the Kentucky Wildcats and Louisville Cardinals square off in men’s college basketball.

Both teams are undefeated.

Kentucky is ranked number one in the country.  Some analysts are saying the fourth-ranked Cardinals are the only opponent standing in the way of an undefeated regular season for the Wildcats.

U of L coach Rick Pitino says UK is using its size and deep bench to play great defensive basketball.

"Everybody thinks you beat Kentucky with three-point shooting," said Pitino. "That's a factor, in any game you want to shoot the three.   But they win because they control the backboard, and they're an awesome defensive team.

Louisville will have its best player back in the lineup tomorrow.  Montrezl Harrell returns to action after serving a one-game suspension for a flagrant foul last week against Western Kentucky.

Tipoff tomorrow (Sat) is at 2pm Eastern Time.
