MBB: Digital Gameday Guide, Wildcat Wrap-Up Introduced
LEXINGTON, Ky. – With the 2015-16 men’s basketball season in full
swing, two new pieces of digital content – the Digital Gameday Guide and
Wildcat Wrap-Up – are in place to help Kentucky fans follow along
during the Wildcats’ quest for their ninth national championship.
The Digital Gameday Guide is a one-stop shop for pregame information for both home and away games. In addition to game previews, the guide will have player features – including exclusive one-on-one interviews – and a complete scouting report of UK’s next opponent from Hall of Famer and UK Sports Network Analyst Mike Pratt. The guide also features rosters with updated statistics, Cats in the NBA, and the latest video and updates from CoachCal.com.
The Digital Gameday Guide will be released on the morning of each game. It can be found at http://ukathletics.com/digitalguide, on UK Athletics’ official social-media accounts and through the Kentucky Wildcats Gameday app.
