It's been a little quiet early this week with men's and women's basketball having a few days without games, but things are about to pick up with a busy weekend upcoming for both basketball teams as well as volleyball.
- No. 10 UK Hoops gets it all started with a marquee matchup against the No. 6/5 Duke Blue Devils on Thursday at 6 p.m. in Rupp Arena. If you haven't heard already, the Wildcats are trying to "Pack the House" for the Rupp game and a great crowd is expected. If you are interested in attending, tickets purchased ahead of time are just $1. Call the UK ticket office at 1-800-928-CATS to buy them. Matthew Mitchell will be speaking to the media this afternoon about the matchup, so keep an eye out for video and a story later today.
- Volleyball continues its run in the NCAA Tournament on Friday at 7 p.m. in Memorial Coliseum, facing off against the tournament's No. 1 overall seed, the Texas Longhorns. Craig Skinner will be talking about the match at a press conference on Thursday afternoon and we'll have full coverage. For complete information about this weekend's regional games, make sure to visit Tourney Central.
- Men's basketball will have its No. 1 ranking tested in a big way on Saturday against the Indiana Hoosiers (8-0). The Wildcats will be heading to Bloomington, Ind., for their first true road game of the season and John Calipari's team may not play in a tougher environment all season, as the Hoosier faithful are approaching this game like it's the biggest of the season. Watch for more coverage as the week goes on.
