The Kentucky Wildcats (7-1) look to bounce back after the tough loss to UCLA last week as they take on the Valparaiso Crusaders (7-1) on the SEC Network Wednesday night at 8:00 PM inside of Rupp Arena. Valpo has an All American caliber big (and top 20 NBA draft pick) in Alec Peters, so it will be interesting to see how UK’s bigs handles him.
The gambling folks out in Vegas opened up having Kentucky favored in this one by 19 points. Valpo is pretty legit–they beat Alabama, BYU, Rhode Island (when they were ranked #21), and their only loss was on the road at Oregon when the Ducks were ranked 4th in the country.
Check back on the site 5-10 minutes after the game for a replay to appear–we’ll make a new post when it is ready. We’ll be doing a Leach & Pratt radio sync of the game as well, but it likely won’t be ready until sometime on Monday afternoon.
