The basketball Cats are up against the first true test of a young season.
UK and Michigan State are set to tip off in Chicago on Tuesday at 7:30 ET.
The Wildcats have taken care of business so far in the exhibitions and first two regular season games, learning and growing in each according to Coach Cal.
But Tuesday will be it's own beast. A beast in which the Spartans will try to come out and punch the Cats right in the face.
Even if Kentucky loses, is it really that big of deal? According to Cal, not really.
Hear from Cal in the video.
