Now, on to your questions…

I’m trying to find out when this weekend’s Kentucky Basketball Big Blue Bahamas games will be played. I know they’re on the SEC Network but not sure what channel it’s on. I have DISH. – Stephanie
Kentucky’s summer exhibition games continue today. The Wildcats play the Dominican Republic (1 p.m. ET, SEC Network). Big Blue then takes on Champagne Chalons-Reims Basket tomorrow and meets the Dominican Republic again on Sunday. Both games are at 1 p.m. on the SEC Network. As far as what channel the game will be on for you, Stephanie, you can use the SEC Network Finder tool above.
