The competition the Rebels faced might not have prepared them for Saturday night’s game at Rupp Arena against the No. 10 Wildcats, who are seeking their 22nd straight conference victory – a run that began with last season’s SEC opener against Ole Miss.
Kentucky (10-2) is coming off a 75-73 home win over then-No. 16 Louisville last Saturday behind a career high-matching 21 points and eight assists fromTyler Ulis.
The guard had his best shooting effort of the season, going 7 of 12 and 4 of 7 from 3-point range after hitting 26.7 percent of his shots over the previous four games. He drained a key 3 in the final five minutes after Louisville got within two.
