2007-2008 Kentucky Basketball

If you are looking for information about this year's team, go to
Current Kentucky Wildcats Basketball Information.

Very strong finish to the season by the Wildcats. In fact, they ended up 2'd in the SEC East. Kentucky basketball also did well in the SEC tournament -- only losing in OT (after a controversial "no-call" to eventual champ -- Georgia.

The NCAA selection committee obviously took all that into consideration in granting UK an 11 seed in the South Region. Kentucky faces Marquette on Thursday in Anaheim, California. My money is on Kentucky!

Anyway, maybe you want to take a quick spring break to California and catch a game or two. If you need tickets, check out 2008 March Madness Tickets and Rebate.

Prior Discussion:

Kentucky Wildcats basketball is one of the great college basketball programs in America. (See articles listed at bottom of this page). The Wildcats have seven NCAA titles and the most overall wins of any college basketball team in history.

Although the Florida Gators have overshadowed the Cats in recent years, the men of UK and head coach Billy Gillispie are looking to reclaim their title as the best team in the SEC.

Kentucky basketball had a good season in 2006-2007 with a 22-12 record. They were fourth in the SEC East (top 4 teams were all from the SEC East) and made it to the quarterfinals in the SEC tournament, where they were defeated by Mississippi State by a heartbreaking 84-82 final score. The Wildcats made it to the second round of the NCAA tournament where they defeated Villanova before losing to Kansas 88-76.

The Cat's enter this season with one of their key players (Derrick Jasper) still recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery. He is expected to rejoin the team by early October. Jasper started in twenty-seven games last season as a freshman and will be a key asset when he returns.

Jared Carter is also recovering from surgery, his second one for a torn right shoulder. Carter is currently in rehab and is expected to make a full recovery in time to play in the upcoming season. He was out for most of the 2007 season due to the same injury but was able to start in three games.

Kentucky Wildcat basketball fans made headlines recently as they were named #1 for college basketball fan attendance last season. That was the nineteenth time the Cats have been recognized for their large crowds.

Prediction Kentucky will battle with Tennessee for tops in the SEC. We think the Cats will finish second to UT. However, they will go far in the NCAA tournament. UK basketball is back!
