Tonight is the night for Cal's Cats to prove their stuff.
The season opener is set for 6:30 p.m. Friday at Rupp Arena.
They will be taking on defending the OVC Champion, the Morehead State Eagles.
Ever since Coach Cal took the job, the hype has been at an incredible level and now the wait is over.
The Eagles won't have to face point guard John Wall, who is sitting out the opener because of an NCAA ruling on his eligibility.
The game airs at 6:30 p.m. on ESPNU. You can catch highlights on 27 NEWSFIRST at 11:00.
