Kentucky senior Reid Travis has played in Madison Square Garden before and says it is a “crazy” experience going into Saturday’s game there against Seton Hall.
“When you’re walking through the halls and you see all the pictures of people that have done concerts there, the big games that are there, you can just feel it,” Travis said Thursday. “When you get in the building, there’s a different feeling about it.
“I’m excited to get back there and just feel that feeling and just try to put on a good game on Saturday.”
Travis said the team is “very excited” to be going to New York to play.
“Any time we can kind of get away and play at a big neutral site like that and play against another big-time program, we’re excited for it,” the senior center said. “We’ve had a good week of prep, preparing ourselves and really think this is a big game to put ourselves on the right step as we go into more nonconference games.”
Kentucky will have had a week between games and will have another week off before it plays again Dec. 15 against Utah in Rupp Arena.
” We got a lot of time to work on ourselves. Practice can be longer. We can start working on different things and really just fine-tune details and things like that, which is nice when you don’t have a game right in the middle of the week that you have to prepare for,” Travis said.
“I think we’ll make jumps in the next couple weeks just because we’ll have a full week of prep for all these games.”
