The Wildcats play host to the Rebels.

Good morning, BBN.

Gameday is here for the Kentucky Wildcats, who will be in the friendly confines of Rupp Arena tonight for an important matchup with the Ole Miss Rebels while looking to end a three-game home losing streak.

One of the league’s biggest surprises this season, the 18-5 Rebels already have their most wins since the 2018-19 season. However, they’re also firmly on the NCAA Tournament bubble, so this is the type of game where Kentucky best be prepared for a postseason-type matchup, or that losing streak will likely reach four.

Will the Cats get the W tonight? Will can only hope...
