We get our first real glimpse of what this Kentucky team will look like.

The Kentucky Wildcats’ starting lineups for tonight has been announced.

Walk-ons Brennan Canada, Zan Payne and Kareem Watkins will be reserves.

Bruiser Flint and Jai Lucas are coaching the White Team. Orlando Antigua and Chin Coleman have the blue team.

In addition, junior forward Jacob Toppin and redshirt junior guard CJ Fredrick are both being held out of tonight’s Blue-White Game due to injury. Toppin missed time with a shoulder injury, while Fredrick is recovering from leg surgery over the summer.

The Kentucky Wildcats host their annual Blue-White game tonight at 7 pm ET at Rupp Arena. You can watch the game on on SEC Network or steam it on WatchESPN.

The excitement is here and loud for this Kentucky basketball team after a resounding Big Blue Madness last Friday.

The team is rejuvenated after a disappointing 2020-21 campaign where we saw John Calipari have his worst season at Kentucky.

Because of this, we saw Calipari go on a tear in the offseason. He picked up multiple transfers like CJ Fredrick and Kellen Grady to add veteran experience and more shooting that can fill the hole Kentucky had last season from the outside.

Calipari also brought Orlando Antigua is back, and Jai Lucas has been on fire. As a result, Kentucky’s recruiting has had a huge 2021 thus far, and it’s not slowing down.

There’s a lot of juice around the program right now, especially since the football program has been on a tear as well. After tonight, I expect that excitement to continue to rise.
