The matchup will definitely be a challenge as the Wildcats prepare to take on a Kansas squad that enters at 17-2 and #5 in the country. Of course, Kentucky is also walking into now of the most intimidating environments in college basketball in Allen Fieldhouse.
A win gives Kentucky its biggest win of the season by far, and a significant resume builder when it comes to NCAA Tournament seeding.
But Kentucky comes in at a disadvantage with the status of second-leading scorer TyTy Washington in question due to injury. Without Washington, Kentucky has struggled offensively and the Cats need to be firing on all cylinders on both ends to be able to take down the Jayhawks.
On the other end, Kentucky will have to deal with one of the top players in the country this season in Ochai Agbaji, who is averaging more than 21 points per game while shooting 47 percent from three.
Tipoff is scheduled for 6 p.m. ET on ESPN. Go Cats!

The two shared stories from their recruitment.
Only the 3rd player in program history to reach this milestone
Doesn’t look like Pearl will be headed to Louisville.
Simmons isn’t headed to Sacramento it seems.
What a time.
