Kentucky gets ready for a matchup in Atlantis, more on Kentucky’s win over Louisville and more.

Jeremy Chisenhall/A Sea if Blue

Kentucky’s matchup against Arizona State today isn’t your normal non-conference game, as they’ll be playing in the Bahamas.

They’ll be playing in a ballroom instead of an arena, and they’re playing a Pac-12 team. Not the most usual things for Kentucky. The game will air live on ESPN 2 at 7 p.m. ET tonight.

That’s right, Teddy, Louisville lost to none other than Kentucky.
