The Big Blue Lowdown

Insight, Analysis and Expertise on All Things Kentucky Basketball


October means one thing in the Bluegrass-Basketball!

October is a normally associated with college football, but in the Bluegrass State we all know that October means another season of Kentucky Basketball is right around the corner.  Midnight Madness is 10 days away, and with the Wildcats coming off their eighth national championship and sure to be ranked in the top five again this season, excitement has never been higher around the program.

John Calipari is entering his fourth season as head coach, and after an NCAA Championship and another Final Four appearance under his belt, its fair to say he has become the King of the Bluegrass.  His trophy tour around the state saw huge crowds on every stop, and then his trip to West Liberty over the summer to help raise funds for tornado victims raised thousands of dollars.

Finally, after taking some downtime this summer, I’m excited to be back giving you my thoughts on UK basketball.  I’ll be scouring the internet for all the best links, photos, and videos as well as sharing my own thoughts as the season unfolds.  Over the next couple weeks I’ll be previewing the team, the Southeastern Conference, and the national landscape.

 It looks to be a great year for basketball as Indiana and Louisville will join Kentucky as consensus top five picks. While the Cats have dropped IU from the schedule, the rivalry with Louisville is sure to sizzle all winter long.

It’s great to be back!  Go 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.
