Kentucky concludes non-conference action on Wednesday when it plays host to Eastern Michigan at 6 p.m. ET in Rupp Arena. UK is 7-1 at home this season, while the Eagles are 0-4 on the year away from home.
UK dropped a heartbreaker at No. 3 Louisville on Saturday despite some valiant effort from a multitude of players. Sophomore Ryan Harrow posted 17 points and three assists while not committing a turnover in 39 minutes of action. Freshman Archie Goodwin had a game-high 22 points, while sophomore Kyle Wiltjer drilled four 3-pointers on the night.
The Wildcats and Eastern Michigan have never met on the hardwood in program history. This is the second first-time opponent of the season for UK after also facing Lafayette for the first time this season.
