Kentucky stumbled in Las Vegas, where it lost first to Utah and then to Ohio State two days later but overall, it has had a solid season even by its high standards.
There was an injury scare with Immanuel Quickley a few weeks back but he’s fine after missing just one game.
Nate Sestina, the fifth-year graduate transfer from Bucknell is also back in the lineup after missing a chunk of the non-conference with a broken hand. He only played six minutes in Kentucky’s last game against Georgia, however; that rotation in Lexington is tough to crack.
The ‘Cats beat Georgia for the second time this season in that most recent victory on Tuesday, 89–79. They are 5–1 in the SEC, behind only 6–0 LSU.
That could be a problem because UK only has one game with the Tigers on its regular season schedule and its in Baton Rouge. To look ahead to that game on February 18 would be a mistake, however.
After this quick one-off against a Big-12 opponent, Kentucky has a dozen SEC games left, six at home and six on the road.
Texas Tech Red Raiders
Texas Tech hasn’t had a flawless season after its run to the NCAA Title game a season ago but few expected it to be so.
The Red Raiders lost three in a row in the non-conference, granted the competition was good (Iowa, Creighton, DePaul), they were away from home and were dealing with some injuries at the time.
They have recently run into some Big-12 struggles too and have lost three out of five but, again, losing to Baylor, at West Virginia and at TCU isn’t anything to be ashamed about.
And Tech had a similar bout of losing last season, before it made its run to the top of the Big-12 standings and, eventually, in the NCAA Tournament. It lost three in a row and four out of six in about the same point of the season, from the middle of January to the very start of February.
The teams that breeze through the regular season aren’t usually the ones that improve them most during the season. Chris Beard is an excellent head coach and the fact that his team has run into some problems here in the middle of the season means he has an opportunity to improve his bunch. For a head coach that relishes challenges, Beard will do his best work here in the second half of the season.
