Time to look ahead to the SEC-Big 12 Challenge.

NCAA Basketball: Kentucky at Alabama Marvin Gentry-USA TODAY Sports

Kentucky’s upset bid in Tuscaloosa fell short in a game that it seemed like Kentucky could’ve (and maybe should’ve) won down the stretch, but ultimately, the Cats fell 70-59.

And now, the Wildcats move forward to a matchup with the Texas Longhorns, who came into last night ranked #5 but were upset by Oklahoma 80-79.

Of course, it was a weird night for the Longhorns as Shaka Smart couldn’t coach the game due to contracting COVID-19, and the Longhorns were without two starters, as well as one of their key reserves.

The Longhorns are still among the best teams in the country, so Saturday is a tall task for this Wildcats squad.

Of course, one of the key players on this Texas roster is a former Kentucky recruit, Greg Brown. Brown is averaging about 12 points and 8 rebounds per game, to go along with 1.4 blocks.

Kentucky will be an underdog going into this game, and a win on Saturday would be huge for this team moving forward.
