The Kentucky men’s basketball team (24-10, 10-8 SEC) was sent to Boise, Idaho in the first round of the 2018 NCAA Tournament as a 5-seed out of the South Region.

The Wildcats of Kentucky face the Wildcats of Davison Thursday night at 7:10 eastern in Taco Bell Arena on the campus of Boise State University.

During the downtime prior to the first tip-off, Spectrum News was able to have some fun with the Cats and fans in Boise.

What do Boise State students know about Kentucky?

Could Brad Calipari coach the Wildcats?

What is the best way to eat an Idaho potato?

This post will be updated with more light-hearted stories as the Cats’ tournament run continues in the first weekend of the NCAA Tournament.
