New, 41 comments

Madness is here.

John Calipari UK Athletics

After last week’s Pro Day, tonight’s Big Blue Madness event is the last stop before Kentucky takes the hardwood against Morehead State next Wednesday at Rupp Arena.

The Kentucky Wildcats will have to wait until then to go to work on Rupp Arena’s floor, as Big Blue Madness will actually take place in Memorial Coliseum. Of course, ‘twas announced two months ago that fans wouldn’t be in attendance for the event. In fact, it’ll be the first time in almost four decades since the event has been held without fans.

Thankfully, Big Blue Nation can indeed watch the event LIVE on television. You can catch Big Blue Madness on the SEC Network, beginning at 9 P.M. EDT. It’ll be a 90-minute telecast with Tom Hart, Jimmy Dykes and Carolyn Peck.

With so much turnover on the Kentucky basketball roster, Big Blue Madness will allow the fans to see these new faces in action. Following the event, Kentucky’s season will quickly begin with three games next week (Wednesday, Friday and Sunday). They’ll then face the no. 6 Kansas Jayhawks on December 1st for just their fourth game of the season. Kentucky is ranked no. 12 to start the year.
