Saturday Headlines: Blue-White Gameday Edition

It’s time for Kentucky Basketball in Northern Kentucky.

Antonio Reeves Dylan Ballard - A Sea Of Blue

Good morning BBN!

The Kentucky Wildcats football program might be on a bye week, but fans will still get their fair share of the Cats this Saturday... just this time, it will be on the hardwood.

After a successful Big Blue Madness a week ago, John Calipari and his team will now travel to Northern Kentucky to play the annual Blue-White game this evening. Tip-off is scheduled for 6 pm and is taking place at Truist Arena on SEC Network+.

Despite the GLOBAL JAM TOUR this summer, this will be the first look at this Kentucky squad in a competitive setting as they get ready for their exhibition games which start next week.

The biggest mystery entering tonight's scrimmage is Zvonimir Ivisic. After arriving to campus last week, this will be the first time fans get to see the international star in live-game action. And with the injuries to Aaron Bradshaw and Ugonna Onyenso going to keep them out for the first few weeks of the season, it will be important to see how quickly Big Z is picking up on the schemes and style Coach Cal wants to play.

Outside of Big Z, it will be the freshman class that should bring a lot of excitement to tonight’s scrimmage. How good will DJ Wagner, Rob Dillingham, Justin Edwards, and Reed Sheppard be? Tonight will be a good first look into what this season could hold for all four.

Let's get this season rolling.

Go Cats!
