NCAA Basketball: Bluegrass Showcase-Morehead State at Kentucky Jordan Prather-USA TODAY Sports

The Kentucky Wildcats (1-0) take on the Richmond Spiders (1-0) to close out the Bluegrass Showcase in Lexington at 1:00 pm EST on ESPN. You can stream the game online at Watch ESPN or with a free trial of fuboTV.

It was an impressive start for the Cats as they took down Morehead State on Wednesday by a score of 81-45. The balance on offense mixed with the length on defense could turn out to be lethal for this Kentucky team.

However, they begin a very tough non-conference schedule with the Richmond Spiders today, who are ranked 61st in KenPom.

Richmond more than likely would have been an NCAA Tournament team last year had it not been canceled. They are very well coached and they’re looking to ruin the beginning of the season for the Cats.

It should be a fun one! Check out some of these pregame reads to get ready:
