Kentucky Basketball: Nick Richards, Wildcats Outlast Texas Tech

My wife grew up in Carter County, Kentucky, smack in the middle of Big Blue Nation- where cheering on Kentucky Basketball is a birthright.

When she breaks out her “I Still Hate Laettner” t-shirt, you know Kentucky Basketball is playing a big game. She proudly laid out her big-game shirt, much the same way that the equipment managers laid out Kentucky Basketball’s white uniforms for their matchup in Lubbock.

John Calipari and his Cats went into United Supermarkets Arena, where non-conference opponents hadn’t managed a victory over Texas Tech since 2013.

This game was huge, especially for Red Raider fans.
