The Cats look to close 2023 out with a W.

Antonio Reeves Dylan Ballard - A Sea Of Blue

The Kentucky Wildcats take on the Illinois State Redbirds at 7 pm ET at Rupp Arena in Lexington, Kentucky. You can watch the game on the SEC Network or stream it live at WatchESPN and the ESPN app.

The back half of 2023 has been very good to the Cats, and they look to close out it with a win over the Redbirds.

It didn’t take much for Kentucky to take down Louisville on the road, with impressive performances from the veterans Antonio Reeves (30 PTS, 4 3PM) and Tre Mitchell (18 PTS, 12 REB).

While we should see a similar performance against the Redbirds, they are 8-4 on the season and on pace for their first winning record since 2019.

This is also a big game for Antonio Reeves, as he began his college career with the Redbirds before landing at Kentucky.
