It is here!

Welcome Big Blue Nation, to the 2019-2020 college basketball season!

It has been a long time coming and I know all of you are excited, so let’s get going.

The No. 2 Kentucky Wildcats are in action tonight as they take on the No. 1 Michigan State Spartans. The two teams are playing the second game during the Champions Classic which is held in New York City.

The start time should be somewhere around 9:40 EST on ESPN and can be streamed online via WatchESPN.

As another year starts, another set of championship expectations are handed down to this Kentucky team. After securing the No. 2 overall recruiting class for 2019, and returning four freshman from last years class, there is a lot of excitement behind the team right now.

Michigan State also has their fair share of championship expectations after making another Final Four last year. Their stud point guard, Cassius Winston, is back along with several other key players from the 2018-2019 team.

Tonight will be a great test for the Cats, so buckle up BBN. The ride to March Madness starts tonight!
