ASHLAND, KY -

Some of the biggest Kentucky Wildcats basketball fans are some of the smallest people that walk the halls at Poage Elementary in Ashland, KY.  And with their fan base running high, their dislike for opponent Louisville runs even higher.

At King's Daughters' Medical Center the Kentucky fan support is a bite older. But they have the same passion as their younger counterparts. Chants of C-A-T-S CATS CATS CATS could be hard in the lobby of the hospital. And the staff was all smiles as they continued to cheer on their team. 

They say winning tonight's game and earning a trip to the Elite 8 is the big prize. But having bragging rights over the in-state rival may be an even better "get" then moving on in the NCAA tournament. 

The last time these two teams squared off was this past season when Kentucky beat Louisville, 73-66 in December
