Thursday Headlines: Kentucky State Gameday Edition

We get to see the Wildcats in exhibition game #2 tonight

Reed Sheppard Jason Marcum - A Sea Of Blue

We get to see the Kentucky Wildcats play in their second and final exhibition game tonight.

Kentucky takes on Kentucky State tonight at Rupp Arena as part of the Unity Series.

The Cats picked up a win over Georgetown College 92-69 last week and will look to get tuned up for the season opener against New Mexico State on Monday.

The Thorobreds are coming off a 15-13 season last year, and the Wildcats and the Thorobreds met in an exhibition game last year with the Wildcats coming out on top 111-53 with Antonio Reeves leading the scoring at 23 points.

Tonight will also be special, as Naismith Basketball Hall of Famer George Raveling and UK alumnus and longtime President/CEO of the Lexington Urban League, P.G. Peeples, will be recognized as part of the Unity Series.

You can never take these exhibition games for granted, but it will be exciting to see the Cats back on the floor as they get ready to get the season underway next week.
