Kentucky is set to face one of the more prominent mid-major programs in college basketball as UK takes on the Davidson Wildcats late this evening.

This isn’t the Steph Curry Davidson team by any means, but they’re still a good 12 seed and a trendy 12/5 upset pick to some. They’re one of the top passing teams in the country, as they rank 12th in the nation with 17.1 assists per game.

Kentucky is looking to push its winning streak to four games, continuing the hot streak that the Wildcats got on at just the right time. UK is projected a 59.8 percent chance to win by ESPN’s Basketball Power Index.

Davidson is also hot, as the other Wildcats have won four straight and are 4-1 in their last five games.

Tonight’s game will take place in Taco Bell Arena in Boise, Idaho, and will tip off at 7:10 p.m. Keep it locked to this thread for game discussion.
