NCAA Basketball: Evansville at Kentucky Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

Nearly a week ago today, No. 1 Kentucky played host to Evansville at Rupp Arena.

The Wildcats were fresh off their win over Michigan State and (rightfully so) feeling on top of the world. With reality quickly setting in, Evansville pulled off the road upset in Lexington to knock off the country’s top-team.

On Monday, head coach John Calipari and his team will have a good chance at redemption against the Utah Valley Wolverines. Judging that Calipari’s teams usually play well following a loss, Big Blue Nation shouldn’t have much to worry about.
