The story of tonight’s Kentucky basketball game was the loss of power that occurred late in the first half of a 91-68 victory.


With the Cats leading 45-27, the lights went out and play was forced to be delayed.



According to reports, John Calipari told his team they could call the game and not finish it. Every single player refused to call the game and they wanted to keep competing.



It’s only August but I’m not pumping the brakes on this one. This team is going to be special.
