NCAA Basketball: IUPU - Ft. Wayne at Kentucky Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

Coming off of their most impressive win of the season, a 19 point victory over Fort Wayne, the Kentucky Wildcats return to action against the Flames of the University of Illinois-Chicago tonight.

The Wildcats currently sit at 5-1 and are in a position to rise from their No. 8 ranking with a victory as several top teams have suffered losses this week. Tip-off is scheduled for 6 p.m., and you can catch the game on the SEC Network or on one of the other venues listed here:

The win against Fort Wayne on Wednesday was the most complete effort Kentucky has put forth this season and they look to build upon that in Rupp Arena this evening. As a 20.5 point favorite, the Wildcats should be able to use this game to both build confidence and work on some kinks they are still trying to figure out.
