Good morning BBN.
The Kentucky Wildcats dropped a heartbreaker against the Kansas Jayhawks on Saturday, in a game that was a huge resume-building opportunity for the Cats.
After a solid turnaround the last two weeks, UK struggled to get over the hump against a talented Kansas team.
There are a lot of different things to point to in the loss, but one thing is for certain: There are still some big games left to win.
Now the page turns to Ole Miss. Kermit Davis’s squad started off well this season but has slowed down since SEC play started. Despite some struggles, winning on the road is never an easy task in conference play.
For this season to not completely derail after a solid comeback since the South Carolina loss, this game in Oxford has become a must-win.

The Wildcats have now qualified for the ITA Indoor National Tournament in two consecutive seasons.
Kentucky’s poor offensive rebounding and three-point shooting top the list of frustrating numbers from the 77-68 loss to Kansas.
Despite entering Saturday's game winners of four straight, 14-6 overall and 5-3 in SEC play, UK was firmly on the NCAA Tournament bubble ahead of the Big 12/SEC challenge showdown and did nothing to change their status with the nine point defeat.
Not much to say on this one.
A huge offer for a talented QB prospect.
