Wednesday, Dec. 7

Opponent: Valparaiso

Time: 8 p.m. ET

Television: SEC Network

Streaming: Watch ESPN app or WatchESPN.com

Location: Rupp Arena; Lexington, Kentucky

Breakdown: The Cats get to stay at Rupp Arena on Wednesday to try and bounce back from their home loss to UCLA. Kentucky allowed the most points ever under John Calipari against the Bruins, but Valpo has a much less explosive offense that could get them back on track defensively. Their offensive efficiency is 111th in the country, according to KenPom, which is a considerable tick down from UCLA at No. 5.

Pick: With Kentucky coming off a loss, I don't think there's any chance they fall to Valparaiso at Rupp Arena. The Wildcats have the talent edge. They have the size edge. And they have home court advantage. I'll pick Kentucky.

Star Alec Peters continues to move up many charts all over the place. He’s already near the top in many Valparaiso Crusader categories, and is now in the top 20 all time scoring-wise in the Horizon League. The senior is averaging 25.4 points per game following the big win over No. 21 Rhode Island, which makes him second in the nation.
The women’s basketball team is off to a solid start this season at 3-3 through six games. Following a big win over Liberty on an Amber Lindfors game winner, the Crusaders fell to Evansville on Wednesday night 70-65. Heading into that game, the Crusaders had the leading scorer (Dani Franklin), leading three-point shooter (Franklin), shot blocker (Lindfors), and assists leader (Hannah Schaub). The team has also had good contributions from freshmen Caitlyn Morrison and Grace Hales, who both average over six points a game.
