After a historic college basketball matchup between Kentucky and Kansas over the weekend, fans are in line to hear a lot more about the history of the sport. Starting tonight, ESPN will debut a new seven-part documentary tonight that focuses on SEC basketball.
The documentary will be directed by Fritz Mitchell, who has led a similar ESPN series on SEC Football and two ESPN: 30 for 30 films.
NEW: ESPN debuts a new seven-part documentary on SEC basketball Monday night. Got an early look at the first episode, and it's almost entirely about Adolph Rupp and the rise of Kentucky. https://t.co/rupjl3DfsE— Ben Roberts (@BenRobertsHL) January 30, 2023
Ben Roberts of the Herald-Leader got a sneak peek at the first episode and said it’s almost entirely about Adolph Rupp and the rise of Kentucky’s basketball program.
Over the next seven weeks, this will be an excellent opportunity for SEC basketball content outside of Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. It all starts tonight at 9 pm ET on the SEC Network.
