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.

Man pleads guilty to Memphis officer's murder
May 21, 2013 22:22 GMT
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- A former death row inmate is set to be released from prison after he pleaded guilty to second-degree murder of a Memphis police officer.
Shelby County District Attorney Amy Weirich said Tuesday that she has accepted Timothy McKinney's guilty plea.
McKinney was convicted of first-degree murder for the fatal shooting of Officer Don Williams. The officer was killed outside a comedy club in December 1997.
McKinney appealed and won a new trial, which ended with a deadlocked jury. A third trial earlier this year also ended in a hung jury.
The Commercial Appeal reports that McKinney was sentenced to 15 years in prison. Since he's already served more than 15 years -- including 11 on death row -- McKinney will be released this week.
Williams' family opposed the settlement.
