Rob Dillingham Dylan Ballard - A Sea Of Blue

Kentucky Wildcats Basketball is always near the top of the list of things to be thankful for, but this year’s team seems to be extra special. They took No. 1 Kansas down to the wire in Chicago and have blown the doors off of their other three opponents at home, with their most recent win coming on Friday when Kentucky scored 101 points on Stonehill.

Tonight, the Wildcats have a rather quick turnaround as they host Saint Joseph’s at Rupp Arena. And while you may think the Wildcats and Hawks don’t have much in common, there is one similarity regarding a previous opponent. Saint Joseph’s also defeated Stonehill recently, and they, too, scored triple figures in their 100-56 victory.

The difference in Kentucky’s blowout of Stonehill, though, is arguably their two best recruits — DJ Wagner and Justin Edwards — haven’t played very well to start the season. So, just imagine how good Kentucky can be if they get those two on track offensively.

Those two, in addition to Reed Sheppard (hot streak), Rob Dillingham (playing more under control), and Jordan Burks (productive in limited minutes), are all players to keep an eye on during tonight’s game — especially with three of Kentucky’s big men still out.

Tonight’s game is scheduled for 7 pm ET and will be televised on the SEC Network.
