Update: Picozzi and Lawson are not at Rupp Arena. They are doing the game remotely from Charlotte. ESPN starting using that setup last season for some college basketball games.

ESPN2 has the 7:00 telecast Wednesday night of Eastern Kentucky at Kentucky with Bob Picozzi on play-by-play and Kara Lawson on color from Rupp Arena.

EKU-UK is part of an ESPN2 doubleheader with UNLV traveling to Wichita State in the second game at 9 p.m. Or after the Kentucky game, you might want to tune over to ESPNU and watch Vanderbilt play host to Dayton.
