The Kentucky Wildcats are one of if not the hottest team in the country right now, as they have won eight in a row and 16 of their last 18.
However, the Cats are getting the recognition they deserve from Andy Katz of NCAA.com.
In his updated Power 36 Rankings, Katz has moved Kentucky up to No. 4 and had this to say about the Cats.
“The Wildcats are the SEC champs and enter the NCAA tournament as a contender.”
The Auburn Tigers were the only other SEC team to make the top 36, coming in at No. 19 after their loss to Kentucky over the weekend, which is two spots lower than their previous ranking.
It is good to see a college basketball expert give the Cats the credit they deserve instead of still holding that November 12th loss to Evansville over their head. Kentucky is a completely different team now than they were back then.
