The #10 Kentucky Wildcats are hoping to continue their winning ways tonight in Rupp Arena against the Monmouth Hawks. The game tips off tonight at 8:30 PM.

The game will be televised on SEC Network. You can also stream the game through Watch ESPN or the Watch ESPN app. Or, if you’re on the road, you can listen to the game via radio on 840 AM in Louisville, 630 AM or 98.1 FM in Lexington, or online via UK Athletics.

Tonight’s game will be the second meeting between the Wildcats and the Hawks. Kentucky won the first matchup 93-76 last season in the Citi Hoops Classic in New York, NY.

The Cats (5-1) won their last game almost a week ago 77-62 against Tennessee State. Kentucky started slow offensively in that game, but held the lead at halftime. Good defense and improving offense helped lead the way to the 15-point victory. Keldon Johnson posted a career high 27 points to go with 7 boards and Reid Travis just missed a double-double with 13 points and 9 rebounds.

The Monmouth Hawks are still looking for their first win of the season, currently sitting at 0-7, their most recent game was a 60-57 loss to Princeton.
