Kentucky lost twice last week and dropped out of the top-25 for the first time since 2014. The ‘Cats did pull a win earlier this week at home against Mississippi State and now it’s time to take a break from conference play and dip into the Big-12/SEC Challenge this weekend.
Kentucky is one of six SEC teams getting points this weekend against Big-12 opponents and that isn’t a surprise. West Virginia is one of the best teams around and Morgantown is a bear to play at.
But if we know anything about John Calipari’s teams at Kentucky, it’s that they do improve as the season goes along. Fourteen turnovers per game is too many and if that continues for another game, the ‘Cats will be in trouble. West Virginia brings the pressure and that building can be intimidating. But if the young guys take care of the ball, UK always has a chance.
West Virginia Mountaineers
West Virginia is holding onto the tenth spot in KenPom’s national rankings, despite losing three of its last last four games, including at TCU on Monday.
The Mountaineers weren’t big favorites in any of the three games they lost. The biggest shock was actually the loss against Kansas when they were five-point favorites. That’s because the game was at home.
Bob Huggins’ team is always a handful at the Coliseum and this game will be no different. It’s a tough spot for Kentucky because it is a little loose with the ball and because West Virginia is in desperation mode. Three out of four doesn’t sound nearly as bad as four out of five. And who knows, if the slide doesn’t stop here, where will it end? The Mountaineers start next week on the road back in Big-12 play.
