🔼 ABC’s. A is for Aaron. B is for Bradshaw. C is for Closing. That’s right. Aaron Bradshaw gave us a show in Kentucky's 87-85 win over Florida. The freshman made huge plays in the final 10 minutes of the game, which included a blocked shot that forced a shot-clock violation. He finished with 10 points and seven rebounds.

Antonio Reeves led with 19 points, and Tre Mitchell got a double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds. After a big win to start conference play, the men are ready to play the first SEC game at home against Missouri tomorrow at 7 p.m. inside Rupp Arena. Buy your tickets here!

🔼 Fill it Up. Imagine this. Every men’s basketball conference game you go to is 100% packed. Fans fill every single seat. The crowd is roaring. Sounds great, right? Well, you can make that happen by buying your tickets now! Better act fast because three games are so close to being sold out.

🔼 Tale Of Two Halves. A 31-point second quarter for Kentucky women’s hoops gave it a 49-39 lead heading into the locker room at halftime of its Sunday matinee at Tennessee, but an extended second-half run by the Lady Vols gave them a 87-69 win on their home floor.

Four scored in double figures for the Wildcats — Eniya Russell led the way with 16 points off the bench, while Ajae Petty (14), Maddie Scherr (13) and Saniah Tyler (10) joined her.


Continuing to Dominate. The men’s basketball team has a huge series win over Florida. In total, the teams have faced each other 151 times. Kentucky is in the triple digits when it comes to wins.

Today’s question — what is the series standing between Kentucky and Florida?

What Happened in Vegas? You know the saying. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. Well, that doesn’t apply when Kentucky gymnastics just got second place in its first meet of the season. We want to tell you all about the women’s achievements.
