Kentucky is still in the game when it comes to making a tournament run, no one questions that, but they can ill afford to lose to another unranked conference opponent. The good thing for the young Wildcats is that they will be playing at home Tuesday night at 7pm on ESPNU as they take on the Ole Miss Rebels. Both teams are 6-2 in SEC play.
UK is 100-13 all-time against Ole Miss, winning the last three.
Kentucky is favored to win by 12.5.
Both teams have struggled with consistency at times this season. Ole Miss has played three overtime games this season, one they lost to a then ranked No.13 Oregon and lost on the road. The Rebels have won some games on the road and have some veterans, like Marshall Henderson, that should keep this game interesting.
Henderson is averaging more than 19 points per game and more than four threes, which he is 2nd in the nation at three per game.
