  • Cats-Cards tough to call this season

     I’ve lived all 22 of my years in Kentucky and I’m not sure I can remember a Kentucky vs. Louisville game that was this hard to pick.

    Play will start at 2 p.m. Thursday and will continue through Saturday night.
    “We’ve never had a boys tournament here before,” coach Steve Simpson said. “Some of the parents were interested in getting some more home games, so we asked some people to raise some money and they did.”
