There are going to be several key players out for this one.

For Kentucky, Rob Dillingham (stomach virus) is out.

Justin Edwards will play but has a leg injury and will not start. Adou Thiero will play and start in Edwards’ place.

For Arkansas, leading rebounder Trevon Brazile is out, as is fifth-leading scorer Devo Davis.

The Kentucky Wildcats take on the Arkansas Razorbacks at 6 PM EST at Bud Walton Arena in Fayetteville, Arkansas. You can watch the game on ESPN or stream it live at WatchESPN and the ESPN app.

It was an embarrassing effort in Columbia earlier this week, as we saw Kentucky’s worst overall performance of the season in a loss to the Gamecocks.

They couldn’t get anything going offensively, and the struggles continued on defense.

The offense will be fine, but I’m sure John Calipari and the staff spent all week working on the defense to try and get these Cats to play together on that side of the ball.

Arkansas has had a disappointing season with some very big losses. They’re coming off a blowout loss at Ole Miss. But with this game being at home and with College GameDay in town, you know the Hogs are going to play out of their minds.

Kentucky badly needs a bounce-back performance to pull out the W.
