The Cats take on the Hawks in Madison Square Garden

NCAA Basketball: Illinois-Chicago at Kentucky Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

The Kentucky Wildcats are in the Big Apple as they prepare to take on the Monmouth Hawks at Madison Square Garden.

The Wildcats are looking to pick up win number 8 against the Hawks, who come in with a 3-6 record. The Hawks hold victories over Bucknell, Lehigh, and Albany. They’ve lost to Seton Hall, Virginia, UNC-Asheville, Penn, Connecticut, and Hofstra.

The game is a noon ET tip-off, so here is a little morning reading to get you caught up for today’s game.

You can find our comprehensive preview of today’s game, with television, streaming, rosters, and all of that here. Also, let’s hope Monmouth’s Micah Seaborn slows down his hot shooting (11/17 from behind the arc over the last three games).

John Calipari wants to see the team shoot more threes, and thinks that Wenyen Gabriel can fill a Derek Willis-type role. More notes from Calipari’s latest press conference are here.
