The Cats will look to halt a three-game losing skid

NCAA Basketball: Tennessee at Kentucky Arden Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

After last night’s loss, Kentucky is now on a three-game losing streak with the latest being an 82-71 loss at Rupp Arena to Tennessee.

The Cats held a 10-point lead in the second half, but fell apart and were outscored in the second half by 19 points.

There were some positives from the game. Keion Brooks had a career performance with 23 points and 11 rebounds and Devin Askew looked better than he had in recent weeks.

However, there are more questions than answers and now, Kentucky welcomes an Arkansas Razorbacks team to Rupp Arena on Tuesday that has won four of its last five games.

The Razorbacks have five players that average double figures in scoring, so the Cats will be in for another challenge on Tuesday. Specifically, they’ll need to keep an eye on Arkansas G Moses Moody, who is averaging a little more than 16 ppg while shooting 45 percent from the floor.

Can Kentucky begin it’s turnaround on Tuesday? Let’s hope so.
