The Kentucky Women’s team is getting hot and just at the right time. At the end of conference play the Kentucky Wildcats were able to to knock off the third ranked South Carolina Gamecocks and they have carried their momentum over to the SEC tournament.

Last night the Women’s team took on the 11th ranked Mississippi State Bulldogs and it did not look great for the Cats late. The Kentucky Wildcats were down by as many as 15 points in the second half and the game looked as if it was all but lost.

Just like the Kentucky Men’s team, they fought back and were resilient in their efforts. The Cats would go on a 30-6 run to come back and sink the Bulldogs 76-67. Up next is the Semis against Tennessee, a team Coach Matthew Mitchell use to coach at under Pat Summit. Kentucky takes on the 5th ranked Volunteers today 7:30 Eastern time.

"Midway through the second half at the free throw line, Epps slapped at her calves, willing her strained Achilles’ tendon to stay with her as she carried Kentucky back from the brink in the quarterfinals of the Southeastern Conference Tournament. “We had a hard time guarding Epps,” Mississippi State Coach Vic Schaefer said afterward. “She probably wants to see me in a best-of seven-series.”"

A lot of great games on tap tomorrow for collegiate basketball fans to end the regular season. Kentucky does not play until 2 o’clock tomorrow so feel free to use the snow as an excuse to sleep in late before the game. Grab yourself a pregame meal and be ready to see Kentucky inch another step closer to 40-0.

Now that you are watching the Kentucky Wildcats play there are a couple of options. You could get bored with a blow out, or you refuse to watch commercial breaks. No fear, a great in conference game is here! The LSU Tigers travel to Arkansas looking to rebound and knock off the 18th ranked Razorbacks. Both Kentucky and Arkansas already have their spots wrapped up, but still interesting to see how each team will fare.

After the game you might want to take a victory nap, go ahead and snooze along until 6:30 then watch a win, win scenario for the Wildcats. The Louisville Cardinals will host the 2nd ranked Virginia Cavaliers looking to secure another key win since they have so few. If Louisville wins then that provides even more separation between anyone who truly believes still that Kentucky is not the best team in the Nation. If Louisville loses then… well Louisville lost and that is never a bad thing.

Finally Duke travels to North Carolina for a rematch of their classic over time match up just a few weeks ago. Despite your feelings for either team, this is one of the richest rivalries in all of sports. Almost every game played between the two is decided by a close margin and do not expect anything different tonight, I give the Tarheels the edge.
