Kentucky vs. Bellarmine: Predict the outcome and gameday headlines

UK is a big favorite against maybe the second-best team in the state.

Adou Thiero Isamu Haynes-Sunayama - A Sea Of Blue

Gameday is back for the Kentucky Wildcats men’s basketball team, who will play host to the Bellarmine Knights.

While UK - UofL is typically the ‘state championship’ between the best schools in the Bluegrass, that may actually be tonight for this season, being that Bellarmine has already beaten Louisville and is coming off a 20-win season in which they won the ASUN.

Plus, it will be good to see UK play a team that’s already faced some of the nation’s best in Duke (lost 74-57) and UCLA (lost 81-60).

So, how do you see tonight playing out? Let us know in the poll below and in the comments section!
