Tonight, LSU plays host to No. 11 Kentucky at the Maravich Center in the team’s most important conference matchup to date — the Tigers need a big conference win to prove that they have a legitimate shot in the SEC. They have only lost two games on their home floor this season, and look to keep it that way against the Wildcats in front of a raucous crowd. In fact, the school is trying to amp up the energy, and has made the game a “purple out” — purple shirts are waiting on the seats for the fans:

There’s no doubt that this will please UK’s John Calipari, who likes to mention that every team brings out pom poms and t-shirts when the ‘Cats come into town — there will be plenty of roaring Tigers supporters waiting for them. You can tune in to the game on ESPN at 9:00 EST.
