The Cats look to extend their five-game winning streak, while the Gators are looking for a signature win.

The Kentucky Wildcats are back in action tonight as they take on the Florida Gators in Lexington. The game is scheduled to start at 6:00 pm EST. and you can watch it on ESPN, or online at WatchESPN.

This is going to be a very interesting game. It’s been reported that Nick Richards will most likely suit up and play, but Ashton Hagans status is in serious question. If both end up not playing, it may be a long night for the Cats.

On the flip side, Big Blue Nation should rather see them both rest up this game and return fully healthy as March is now just one week away. Also, seeing Nate Sestina play the way he did on Tuesday is very encouraging.

The Florida Gators have found a rhythm, as they’ve won 5 of their last 6 games. They really need this road win over the Cats to boost their tourney chances/seed.

It’s always a fight with the Gators, and if Hagans/Richards can’t go, we’ll see how prepared players like Montgomery and Juzang are to step up in the missing offense.
