Thursday Headlines: Kentucky vs. Canada Gameday Edition

Kentucky takes on Canada in GLOBL JAM action today.

Reed Sheppard Dylan Ballard - A Sea Of Blue

It’s gameday again!

It still feels weird to say that in July, but Kentucky Wildcats Basketball is back in action today against host Canada in GLOBL Jam today.

The Cats are coming off a strong performance against Team Germany yesterday, winning 81-73 in the tournament opener.

Yesterday, we saw the veterans Antonio Reeves and Tre Mitchell lead the way, combining for 44 points. We also saw some good things from the young guys that provide a lot of optimism.

Kentucky faces a really tough test today in Team Canada, as the Canadians are coming off an 88-62 win over Team Africa yesterday, so the Wildcats will need another strong performance to get the win.

Tipoff is set for 8 p.m. ET. The game will not be on live television but can be seen on a tape delayed basis at midnight ET. Fans can listen to the game live on the UK Sports Network.

Go Cats!
