The Cats look to continue their hot start to the season against Walter McCarty’s Purple Aces.

College basketball is now in full swing, and the Kentucky Wildcats have started the season on fire.

The new AP Poll just released yesterday, and Kentucky is sitting at the very top as the new No. 1 team in the nation.

It is definitely an exciting time to be a fan, but there are a lot games left to play, which includes tonight! Kentucky will be at home as they play the University of Evansville, who are led by former Wildcat and national champion Walter McCarty. The game will start at 7:00 pm EST on the SEC Network and can be streamed online using WatchESPN.

Last game, we saw what a healthy Nick Richards could mean to this team. He went off for 21 points and 10 rebounds to go with four blocks. If he can put up even half of these numbers consistently for this team, watch out.

Sophomore forward EJ Montgomery will likely not play tonight due to an ankle injury.
