What to Know
The #19 Kentucky Wildcats will take on the Michigan Wolverines at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday at The O2 Arena. The Wildcats will be strutting in after a win while Michigan will be stumbling in from a defeat.
While not quite a landslide, the contest between UK and the Bellarmine Knights on Tuesday was still a pretty decisive one as UK wrapped it up with a 60-41 victory at home. Guard Antonio Reeves (18 points) was the top scorer for UK.
Meanwhile, Michigan entered their matchup against the Virginia Cavaliers on Tuesday without any home losses — but there’s a first time for everything. The Wolverines fell just short of Virginia by a score of 70-68. A silver lining for Michigan was the play of center Hunter Dickinson, who had 23 points along with seven rebounds and five blocks.
UK’s victory brought them up to 5-2 while Michigan’s loss pulled them down to an identical 5-2. A couple stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: UK comes into the game boasting the second most blocked shots per game in college basketball at 6.6. The Wolverines are not quite as good, but they are no chumps, either: they rank fifth in college basketball when it comes to blocked shots per game, with 6.4 on average. Points in the paint might be hard to come by.
