LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Everybody’s gotta play basketball games.
Cal’s not worried about how hard the South Region bracket is or may be.
It’s March. A month ago, UK was dead in the water with no chance to win the SEC.
Then Kentucky surged…winning three games in three days to claim the program’s 31st SEC Tourney crown.
Davidson just knocked off top 25 Rhode Island to win the A-10 and make its way into the dance.
So is it a good thing Cal’s young Cats will get a league champ in the first round in Boise Thursday night to stay sharp since both groups of Wildcats are in similar situations hitting their strides late?
When you hear Cal say Kentucky got the shaft every season in March…
When you think back to UK’s 8 seed taking on top-seed Wichita State…
When you think back on the run the Cats had last season…getting UCLA and North Carolina, as Cal calls it, their little corner…
You think “it’s not easy.” It’s not supposed to be in March.
This year’s team is embracing a tough road. It’s just extra motivation.
Hear from Cal, Wenyen Gabriel and Hamidou Diallo in the video.
