Kentucky is always a lightning rod in college hoops. With an increase in their quality of play they might finally be worth talking more about.
Missouri is going to struggle for consideration in terms of the bubble but a win over Kentucky is always helpful in proving you belong in the conversation.
With regards to that increase I was referring to their road win at West Virginia. Which was followed up by an OT escape at home against Vanderbilt. Which team does this group want to be.
Kevin Knox was phenomenal in the win over the Mountaineers showing some of the potential that could make him a lottery pick. Alas there have been too many games where he has been average.
One of the reasons this team has struggled is because you can say the same thing about half a dozen other players. The question is whether it is bad scouting or underperformance.
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander might be the key to this team achieving what it is capable of. He scored 30 against Vanderbilt and his biggest games seem to correlate with wins.
Mizzou broke a three game winning streak with a nice win at Alabama earlier in the week. It was a resume builder but this one would be even bigger.
Kassius Robertson scored almost a third of the Tigers 69 points in the game. He has had back to back to back 20+ point game and is playing almost the whole contest.
I bring that up because Cuonzo Martin is smartly riding his horses. The fact that Mizzou is down their star is well documented and they need all of these wins to have any chance of selection.
It is going to be really hard to compete with Kentucky’s length but the aggressiveness of the Tigers may make them very uncomfortable and that team wants things to be easy.

Free Kentucky Wildcats vs. West Virginia NCAAB Prediction:
Heading to WVU it was difficult to imagine Kentucky winning in a challenging environment. Can they do it twice in a row.
This one is a very interesting contest with a little David and Goliath action potentially bringing out the fight in the dog.

Look for Kentucky to win but for Missouri to keep it close.
