Solid Blue fans were a little "down" Monday following word that the UK Men's Basketball Team will not be playing in this season's NCAA Tournament.
Local apparel stores like Fan Outfitters in the Hamburg shopping area say business has been slow at a normally very busy time of year. Then again normally this time of year the Wildcats are getting ready for the NCAA's. Even local sports bars are expecting a slow weekend for the first rounds of games.
Fans around Lexington say they have very little interest in a tournament minus UK. They say there is even less interest in the NIT Tournament.
Making matters worse for Solid Blue fans, the University of Louisville will be playing their first round NCAA Tournament games right here in Lexington at Rupp Arena.
