When the Cats finally return home tomorrow night and welcome Bruce Pearl back to the court, they'll bringing two pieces of extra baggage with them from Gainesville.  Two of the game's officials will be Tony Greene and "TV" Teddy Valentine, who both called the game against the Gators.  Valentine, who made the questionable call on Josh Harrellson's fifth and final foul Saturday, also called the NCAA Tournament loss to West Virginia and the SEC Championship game against Mississippi State.  According to Jon Scott's site, he also once gave Josh Carrier a technical foul for "intimidating" Matt Walsh.  Seems like the entire Rupp Crowd could have received on of those.  Greene, meanwhile, called all three matchups between the Cats and Vols last season and handed out eight technical fouls.  Should be a fun one. Here are their full bodies of work in UK games: Tony Greene (Cats are 50-27 in his games) "TV" Teddy Valentine (Cats are 28-11 in his games)
