WASHINGTON, D.C. (WHAS11)- Basketball mania is not only here in Kentucky, but it has reached Washington too.
Kentucky senator Mitch McConnell who went to school at U of L and law school at UK says it is a dream game the entire state has been waiting for.
"If the excitement and frenzy and turbulence that's been stirred up in Kentucky this week could be harnessed, we could solve our energy crisis. Basketball fans from Kentucky have been waiting their whole lives for this game."
McConnell also went on to say that this rivalry is the biggest in college basketball, bigger than North Carolina and Duke.
