The Big Blue Lowdown

Insight, Analysis and Expertise on All Things Kentucky Basketball


About the BBL

The Big Blue Lowdown is an Internet presence dedicated wholly to the discussion and analysis of University of Kentucky basketball, its players, coaches, traditions and fans, as well as a site where college basketball in general is the topic of choice.

30 Years of Knowledge
We provide a keen eye on the world of UK hoops and offer a level of insight and expert opinion that comes from being close observers of Kentucky basketball for the past 30 years.

Why We’re Different
What makes the BBL different from other Kentucky sites is that we encompass the perspective of the passionate but intelligent fan. We can’t be at every game and we can’t break hard hitting news stories or provide exclusive access to players. In fact, we don’t try to.

Instead, we break down player performances and coaching moves. We tell you what you need to know about what happens on the court and give you predictions and educated speculation about what to expect in the future.

An Overall Fan Experience
We’ll also tell you about cool products, trends and interesting off-court stories. And most of all, we’ll give you a place to interact and engage with us and other fans of Kentucky basketball. In short, we want the BBL to give you a way to be connected to the program and to feel completely up to date and on top of what’s going on with your beloved Cats.

1. This loss means nothing. UK lost a game on the road in bizarre circumstances vs a very good team. If anything,...
Time to put Texas A&M to bed and get tuned up for a high seed in the big dance.
Epic collapse by UK tonight. Still something not right with this team.
Tough loss over the weekend, but the Cats showed heart...they'll be back.
