Good morning BBN!
After a wild sports weekend, the Kentucky Wildcats are back in action tonight in Oxford, as they look to get back to their winning ways against the Ole Miss Rebels.
It was a tough loss to the hands of Kansas for the Cats this weekend, who still desperately need another signature win to add to their resume. Despite a solid effort against the Jayhawks, UK could just not get over the hump.
That can not be the case tonight in Oxford.
Sitting at 14-7 (4-4) on the season, Kentucky needs a big win against a Rebels team that sits near the bottom of the SEC. A loss here not only starts the pessimism once again but could likely put the Cats on the outside looking in of the NCAA Tournament field once again.
Ole Miss sits at 9-12 (1-7) on the season and is coming off an 82-80 loss to Oklahoma State in the SEC/Big 12 challenge. Kermit Davis will have his squad ready to go and will look to get the first signature win in conference play this season.
Kentucky is the much better team in the matchup tonight. Now, all we can hope is they show up and play that way.
