Follow along with all the fun. Walked around Atlanta most of today and, as you might suspect, UK fans were everywhere. Outnumbering all the bad guys put together.

Did you see Ted Turner with his shotgun, corncob pipe, and bottle of Kentucky bourbon sitting at the entrance of the stadium in a wicker chair screaming about how Martians stole Hanoi Jane and ate his prized alpaca? I hear he does that 3 times a weeks.
Just joined Darrell courtside. Crowd filling in a bit. Lots of blue, but difficult to tell if that's Kentucky, Kansas or Duke blue.
Michigan State's Derrick Nix is a big, big boy.
Hey Matt, go and give Bobby Knight a big hug for me(sarcasm) and thank goodness he isnt doing the KY game. Really like to meet Dickie V. though. Have fun Matt. GO CATS
Please please please no overtime with Kansas and Michigan State ... I want to get it on with Duke yesterday ...
I'm praying for no OT in Kansas-State but it's a hell of a game right now. 51 all with 8 minutes left.
This is a great event ... would make for a great Final Four.
Tough night for the UK women, who lost 85-51 to No. 1 Baylor.
If the cheer that just went up when Kentucky was mentioned over Dome speaker was any indication, UK going to have huge crowd edge
That's what Dan Shulman and Jay Bilas just said ... said there were more UK fans than anyone ...
Michigan State is such a freaking hard-nosed team every year. Love watching how tough it plays, even if it's not always pretty.
Also a classy program, team, coach and fanbase. I was at the UK-MSU 'Basketbowl' game at Ford Field with 78,000 fans ... sitting in the middle of an MSU section. They were nothing but classy and complimentary of UK and our program.
Kansas fan just yelled, 'What are you, chicken? You turkeys!!' b/c Michigan State dared call timeout to set up play with 35 seconds left.
Collective silent chant along press row among UK media... NO overtime, NO overtime.
FINAL: Michigan State 67, Kansas 64; Jayhawks' 3 rattles out just before the buzzer. Gritty win by the Spartans.
Agreed, on all accounts. That was one of first big games I covered after college.
Kentucky wearing white tonight.
19 minutes on the in house game clocks. That means tip about 9:40 pm
Status of Harrow and Mays?
Saw Mays in the warmup line ... assuming he's ready to go.
Scoreboard says Kentucky starters are: Noel, Goodwin, Poythress, Wiltjer, Mays
Duke starters listed as Tyler Thornton, Mason Plumlee, Rasheed Sulaimon, Seth Curry, Ryan Kelly
Was told Harrow didn't make trip at all, but can't confirm that. Can confirm he's not on court in warmups.
Fascinating matchup. Duke's seasoned, steady Plumlee twins vs. UK's athletic big men.
Seems hard to believe but the last time these teams got together was Dec. 1, 2001. Marquis Estill scored 9 points and had 4 rebounds in 13 minutes. He's now back on bench in suit as student assistant.
