Good morning BBN.
The Kentucky Wildcats lost a heartbreaker to the Kansas Jayhawks on Saturday, in a game that was a huge shooting opportunity for the Cats.
After a solid turnaround over the past two weeks, UK have struggled to get over the hump against a talented Kansas team.
There are many different things to point out in defeat, but one thing is certain: there are still some important games to be won.
Now the page switches to Ole Miss. Kermit Davis’ team has got off to a good start this season, but has slowed down since SEC play began. Despite some difficulties, winning on the road is never an easy task in conference play.
Lest this season get completely derailed after a solid comeback from defeat in South Carolina, this game in Oxford has become a must.
Stay tuned as we will have a lot of content leading up to Tuesday night’s tip.
