The Kentucky Wildcats are hosting their annual Senior Day today as the Florida Gators come to Rupp Arena. Game time is set for 4 pm ET on CBS, and you can stream the game online using CBS Sports Live and with a free trial of fuboTV.

Kentucky will honor seniors Olivier Sarr, Davion Mintz and Riley Welch today, though Mintz has previously said he’s considering a return for the 2021-22 college hoops season. Sarr and Welch likely won’t come back, so today will be a very special day as they look to finish their college careers in style.

With an at-large berth to the Big Dance still likely out of the question, the Cats are looking to end the regular season on a high note while also climbing up the SEC standings in hopes of getting a double-bye in the conference tournament.

But to even get a single-bye, Kentucky has to finish in the top eight of the conference standings, something that will be hard to do without a win over Florida, who is currently fourth in the standings and holding that final double-bye.

And as always, Go Cats!
