Big Z. Zvonimir Ivisic. Dylan Ballard - A Sea Of Blue

Wake up, BBN! It’s gameday in Lexington, where the Kentucky Wildcats will play host to the Gonzaga Bulldogs in a game that will be a Quad I opportunity for both teams.

After going 0-2 last week, the Cats bounced back in a big way Tuesday night in Nashville with a 109-77 demolition of the Vanderbilt Commodores. Was that the game that gets Kentucky back on track? We’ll find out soon enough against a solid Gonzaga team that’s actually ranked higher than Kentucky at KenPom.

Go Cats!
