Former Kentucky point guard Brandon Knight says it is a “no-brainer” for him to pick Kentucky to beat Louisville at Rupp Arena this season.
“I know it’s going to be crazy here. It’s going to be jam-packed. A lot of talking and a lot of competition,” said Knight after Monday’s UK alumni game. “The last two national championships will be here. I think that’s what the players here — not that they don’t live to win a national championship — that’s the game that you play your hardest. You make sure that you bring a win back to Lexington, because you are going to have to hear about it the rest of the year if you don’t.
“I think guys are really tuned in and prepared for that game. Not only for basketball, but for any sport. When you know you are playing the University of Louisville, for some reason everybody comes out to support. Whether you are a volleyball fan or a softball fan, everybody comes out to support for at least that one game just to make sure we are behind each other 100 percent. You have to make sure you don’t let them get wins from us.”
And my guess is that UK football coach Mark Stoops and his players certainly would agree going into their own showdown with Louisville Saturday.
