The most intriguing matchup of the Big 12/SEC Challenge features #19 Kentucky against #4 Kansas on Saturday night.
Kentucky has rattled off 3 straight wins while the Jayhawks look to rebound from a bad road loss to Iowa State all the way back on Monday.
The Wildcats continue to keep pace in the SEC and they’re now within just 1 game of the Aggies after they got a little help from Arkansas.
Kentucky has rattled off 3 straight wins against middle of the pack conference teams as they step out of conference for this one and look for a huge tournament resume builder here.
Kentucky will try to add to already two resume wins as they’ve knocked off Duke and Louisville, both ranked high at the time of defeat. However, with both kind of falling off a bit, a win on the road against the #4 team in the nation this late in the season will certainly be a huge victory for them.
Kentucky will look to the guy who’s been doing it all season long for them in Jamal Murray. The G has averaged 17.5 points per game to go along with 4.8 rebounds per game this season.
The Jayhawks have gotten to the #1 spot this season on multiple occasions, but the slip ups have come at the worst times.
They’ll look for another huge win as they try and search for that #1 spot once again and get themselves in a position to make a run at a March #1 seed. A win over the #17 team out of the SEC would be a solid start in that.
The Jayhawks went into Iowa State on Monday and led for a majority of the first half, but a huge 2nd half run by Iowa State was just too much to overcome. With West Virginia and Oklahoma looming 3 games from now, winning a game like this is important incase there is a slip up in conference play.
Kansas has been extremely dominant at home this season as they are scoring 89.3 points per game while conceding 67.0. However, with how good they’ve been, they have had to deal with big home spreads. With that, they are just 4-4 ATS in lined games.
