Kentucky vs. Duquesne Gameday Headlines

The Cats are back in action.

Adou Thiero Jason Marcum - A Sea of Blue

Game No. 2 is on deck for the Kentucky Wildcats tonight as the Duquesne Dukes invade Rupp Arena.

After a very promising opener vs. Howard, the hot-shooting Cats will look to keep their offensive resurgence going against a Duquesne team that plays in the Atlantic 10 Conference and is led by head coach Keith Dambrot, a three-time MAC Coach of the Year award winner.

If you want an idea of how competitive this game could be, the Dukes are coming off a 91-63 home win over Montana and are currently ranked 122nd at KenPom compared to Howard being 241st.

It’s still unclear who will be out tonight between the trio of Sahvir Wheeler, Oscar Tshiebwe and Daimion Collins, though the hope is they’ll all play Tuesday vs. Michigan State.
