Coming off an Ivy League championship season that saw it reach the NCAA tournament, the Penn basketball team will open its 1999-2000 season with a nationally televised game Nov. 17 at Kentucky in the first round of the 14-team preseason NIT. "I'm excited," said Michael Jordan, Penn's two-time all-Ivy League guard. "It's a great way to start the season down there. I've heard it's tough to win down there. " When the Quakers take the court at 23,000-seat Rupp Arena in Lexington, it will mark the second straight year that they have opened the season against one of the stalwarts of college basketball.

Kansas is proving it doesn't need Wayne Simien to beat a quality opponent, even on the road. Playing without its standout inside player, the second-ranked Jayhawks got 28 points from the frontline of C.J. Giles, Christian Moody and Sasha Kaun yesterday in a 65-59 victory over No. 8 Kentucky. Playing its first game of the season on an opponent's home court - and in front of 24,367 fans, the second-largest crowd in Rupp Arena history - Kansas (11-0) won for the fourth straight time without Simien, a preseason All-America who is out after surgery on his left thumb.

On Jan. 7, Kentucky was beating Mississippi State at Rupp Arena by double digits in the second half of a game it would win by 29 points. But on several consecutive possessions, Mississippi State was able to beat the Wildcats' fullcourt pressure for layups. More than a few fans booed. Just when you figured all those great expectations had been fulfilled when Kentucky won the national title last April . . . "It hurt," senior guard Derek Anderson said. "As hard as we've worked, it shocked me, really.

LEXINGTON, Ky. - Back at Rupp Arena for the first time since the 2007 NCAA Tournament, Penn's men's basketball team looked to open 2011 with a monumental upset of the No. 10 Kentucky Wildcats. And for the first 15 minutes of the game last night, the Quakers appeared capable of just that, but they couldn't hold on to a double-digit lead, losing, 86-62. Penn (5-6) stayed ahead of Kentucky for all but 1 minute of the first half, as senior Tyler Bernardini put on a lights-out three-point performance.

In a physical, low-scoring game, it was Tennessee's three-point shooting that gave the Volunteers their first win at Kentucky in a generation. Tennessee scored just four baskets in the last 12 minutes last night, but all four were threes - the last two of them by Brandon Wharton - as the Volunteers upset the Wildcats, 47-46. "I just let it go," Wharton said of the game-winner, a 20-footer from the top of the key with 1:08 remaining. When the horn sounded, with Kentucky struggling to get a shot off from under the basket, the Volunteers players rushed the floor in celebration.

GIVEN THAT all the superpowers know they will be in the tournament before the season ever begins, regular-season games are rarely must-watch anymore. Kentucky at Louisville on Saturday is must-watch. The teams will arrive at the KFC Yum! Center, hard by the Ohio River in the 'Ville's downtown, with combined records of 23-0 and rankings of No. 1 (Kentucky) and No. 4 (Louisville). Rick Pitino's Cardinals team lost most of the key players from the 2013 national champs and last season's Sweet 16 team, which was knocked out by Kentucky.

THE ONLY EVENT that could possibly be bigger in Kentucky would be if Secretariat was reincarnated and in the 2012 Derby starting gate. And that might not do it this spring. Louisville loves its basketball team. The commonwealth adores its state university. Both of them in the Final Four. Imagine? To University of Kentucky fans, the only thing worse than losing to Louisville would be losing to Louisville coached by Rick Pitino, the man who brought their team back from disgrace and left for the NBA just as every fan was certain the Wildcats were going to win every national title until the end of time.

Josh Harrellson started his senior season at Kentucky as the guy who still liked to make his teammates laugh but one whose so-so commitment to his conditioning and development as a player didn't win him much love from coach John Calipari. From that beginning, Harrellson's situation got worse. A Twitter posting in which he complained, "It's just amazing to me I can't get a good job or a way to go" from Calipari after grabbing 26 rebounds in the Wildcats' Blue & White scrimmage in October almost won him a one-way ticket out of Rupp Arena.
