The Cats look to bounce back from their first loss of the season as Utah Valley invades Rupp Arena.

The Kentucky Wildcats are back in action tonight at 7:00 pm EST as they are taking on Utah Valley in Lexington. The game will be broadcast on ESPN2 and can be viewed online using WatchESPN.

It’s safe to say that no one expected what took place last Tuesday in Rupp Arena. It was one of the worst losses in the John Calipari era, and arguably the worst loss in the history of Kentucky Basketball. It’s something none of us will ever forget, but it’s something this team has to live with and use for motivation for the rest of the season.

This team is still loaded with talent and can beat anyone in the country. I’m sure Coach Cal and company has had a very productive week at practice. This team should come out tonight and make a statement against a lesser Utah Valley team, even though it will be without EJ Montgomery as he remains out with an ankle injury.

Get ready for the game tonight by looking over some of these pregame reads:
