Good morning BBN!

Today, the Kentucky Wildcats baseball team begins what hopes to be a long run in the SEC Tournament as the 8-seed.

Up first, they’ll face the 9-seed Alabama Crimson Tide at 5:30 pm ET on the SEC Network. It’s a single-elimination game, and the winner advances to Wednesday to face the top-seeded Florida Gators.

D1 Baseball currently has Kentucky projected as the 9-seed in the NCAA Tournament. A big showing in the SEC Tournament could bump the Cats up to one of the top eight seeds, which means they would host through the Super Regional round.
