The Tigers are heading to Lexington for the Kentucky high school Sweet 16, but before they get to the title game, they have to avenge a first-round loss in 2012.
"Remember what that felt like and take it to the court tomorrow night," said Tim Hayworth, head coach.
This year Tigers counting on each other but they're are also taking with them a 31-4 record and a Top 4 ranking.
This year's team thinks they can win the first state title since 1985, almost a decade before any of the current players were born.
"I feel good that we got a chance to bring it back to hoptown," Jaqualis Matlock said.
To do it, they need to win out in one of the most famous courts in all of college basketball.
"Anytime you get to step on the Rupp arena floor and you grow up a Kentucky fan, it means a lot," Hayworth said.
Whether they lose the first game or win them all, the last basket for the tigers this season will fall on the same court where the Kentucky Wildcats play. Jordan Majors says the feeling is indescribable.
"It's a once in a lifetime experience," Majors said. "It's like a great feeling when you step out onto Rupp. It's unexplainable."
The Tigers take on South Oldham Wednesday night at Rupp Arena in Lexington.
