Fans, players and coaches saw an all too familiar scene when UNLV trimmed Kentucky's 20 point second…
Cats advance in NIT with 70-60 win over UNLV
The game was played in Memorial Coliseum, Kentucky's home until 1976 when Rupp Arena was built. Due to the Kentucky state high school basketball tournament already scheduled in Rupp Arena, the contest was played in front of a sellout crowd of 8,327 raucous fans instead of the more cavernous Rupp Arena, which holds almost three times that capacity.
Kentucky will advance in the NIT to play the winner of # 1 seed Creighton vs # 8 seed Bowling Green. If Creighton wins, the Wildcats will travel, and if Bowling Green wins, the Wildcats will have a second consecutive home contest as the higher seeded team.
