Saturday afternoon, the Kentucky Wildcats will face the Louisville Cardinals.
The #1 ranked Kentucky Wildcats remained undefeated after routing the UCLA Bruins 83 - 44 on December 20th. The Wildcats put the game out of reach early after opening with a 24 - 0 run that left the Bruins reeling. By halftime, UCLA had scored just 7 points while Kentucky had scored 41. The game's final result was no longer in doubt even though the Bruins worked hard in the 2nd half to make the score respectable. Kentucky shot 50% from the field as they held UCLA to just 26% shooting. The Wildcats were led by Devin Booker and his 19 points. Kentucky will face some serious opposition from their in-state rival and a 13th straight win might not be that easy to get.
The #4 ranked Louisville Cardinals dealt the Cal State Northridge Matadors an 80 - 55 loss on Wednesday. Louisville started things off with a 15 - 2 run and they never let up on Cal State Northridge. The Cardinals were up by 11 at the half and they continued to dominate things in the 2nd half. The Cardinals were paced by Wayne Blackshear's career high 31 points as Louisville shot 47% from the field and 40% from beyond the arc. If Blackshear can post big numbers against the Wildcats, Louisville could get to 12 - 0 while dealing Kentucky their first loss of the season.
