The Kentucky Wildcats will be home for the holidays to greet the Florida A&M Rattlers at 7 p.m. ET on Wednesday at Rupp Arena at Central Bank Center. The Wildcats are out to keep their six-game home win streak alive.
UK came up short against the UCLA Bruins this past Saturday, falling 63-53. Guard Cason Wallace had a pretty forgettable game, playing for 33 minutes but putting up just seven points on 2-for-13 shooting.
Meanwhile, Florida A&M was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap this past Saturday as they fell 61-55 to the Louisville Cardinals. Guard Jordan Tillmon (17 points) was the top scorer for the Rattlers.
The losses put the Wildcats at 7-3 and Florida A&M at 2-7. UK doesn’t typically stay down for long — they’re 2-0 after losses this year — so Florida A&M (2-4 after losses) won’t have an easy go of it.
This is the first time these teams have played each other within the last seven years.
