It's win or NIT for Kentucky tonight, unless they can take the SEC tournament.

Biggest game of the year? Maybe not. One of the most important games Kentucky plays in the SEC this year? Oh, yeah.

Game particulars as follows:

At this point, there are only three things I want to see:

  • A game where Kentucky does not turn the ball over like the are afraid to shoot it;

  • A game in which Kentucky plays like their season depends on it – because it might;

  • A game in which the Wildcats act like a team that really does want to take a shot at the NCAA Tournament.

Honestly, right now I have no idea what to think, but what I think I know is that if Kentucky doesn’t win this one, they will probably need to win the SEC Tournament to get to the Big Dance. That may be wrong – a victory over Florida on Saturday would surely undo some of the damage – but that’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.

Go, ’Cats!
