    Well our Kentucky Wildcats definitely had a knack for the dramatic this week, following up their come from behind victory at Mississippi State Tuesday night with an unbelievable finish in Nashville Saturday night.  Vanderbilt had a chance to pull into a first place tie in the SEC East with a victory and had dominated the Cats at home over the last several seasons.  This year’s edition of Cats had a different idea in mind though and with the victory finally have a little breathing room in the SEC East race with only four regular season games left to play.

  • Cat Attack 2-18-10

    I don’t know about you, but I sure had a sense of déjà vu as I watched Kentucky battle Mississippi State. Flashbacks of Columbia and the team’s only loss of the season kept running through my mind with the same horrible ending about to repeat itself. But this time, instead of faltering on the road in a hostile environment, Kentucky managed to send the game to overtime where they were able to hold on for a hard fought victory 81-75.
