The Kentucky Wildcats take on the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers at 6 pm ET at Rupp Arena. You can watch the game on ESPN or stream it live on WatchESPN, the ESPN app, or a free trial of fuboTV.

From the devastating tornadoes in Western Kentucky to having back-to-back games against Ohio State and Louisville getting canceled, it’s been a tumultuous past couple of weeks for the Wildcats.

Luckily, this game was able to get replaced with Western Kentucky, and the Kentucky basketball program announced that they’re working on a charitable component to the game for the people affected by tornadoes, which is amazing.

This game will be a big test for the Cats, as WKU just beat Louisville last week. But if they play anything like they did against UNC, they should be just fine.
