The Rebels had picked up some momentum late in the season, winning five of six but are coming off of a bad loss Saturday against Vanderbilt who was playing without Dylan Disu and Scotty Pippen Jr.
Ole Miss sits at 8-8 in SEC play, good enough for 6th in the conference, so Kentucky could make some progress moving up the SEC standings if they were to pick up a win.
However, the Cats will have to keep Rebels G Devontae Shuler in check. Shuler is the leading scorer for the Rebels, averaging 16 points per game and is coming off a 25-point performance in Saturday’s loss.
Romello White, a transfer from Arizona State, will also be a player to watch out for. The senior forward is averaging 11 points per game but is coming off a 17 point, 8 rebound performance on Saturday.
This is a very winnable game for Kentucky, and one that will be needed if Kentucky wants to move up the SEC standings.
Tweet of the Day
Huge night for PJ.
The margin is down to six wins.
Calipari will likely need to go find some dudes on the transfer market.
He would be a nice addition.
Not sure anyone expected that.
What a parlay for this guy.
No love for the comeback player of the year.
