Kentucky basketball goes on the road for the third time this season to take on a veteran Alabama team that’s not far behind the Cats in the SEC standings.
Despite the Cats’ perfect record through 16 games, their short three-game conference schedule has seen its share of lumps.
Both Ole Miss and Texas A&M took UK to overtime, and the Cats’ only decisive win came against a Missouri team whose record is tied for second-worst in the SEC.
In fact, all three of the Cats’ conference matchups have come against three of the four worst teams in the SEC, according to the standings.
But Alabama is fifth in the SEC and holds a 10-0 record at home this season.
