Thanks to Kentucky's 74-72 win over Kansas State in the semifinals of the Las Vegas Invitational that stretched into the early morning hours, their championship game with West Virginia will not overlap with Kentucky's football game with Tennessee.
The UK basketball game isn't set to tip off until around 9:30pm. The UK radio network informed their affiliates this week that they will leave coverage of the football game immediately after the Rich Brooks Post Game Show and join pregame coverage of the basketball game.
In case you were wondering, Tom Leach will call the football game, while Neil Price, the radio voice of the UK women's team, and Mike Pratt have the radio call of the basketball game. The game will be on ESPN2 as well.
Had UK lost the game, it would have been a simulcast nightmare with both games being played at the same time and the UK basketball game being carried on a tape-delay basis by WKDZ and many other statewide radio outlets.
