The Cats’ trip to Morgantown on January 27 for the Big 12 SEC Challenge will be a primetime affair. Kentucky just announced that the game will tip off at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN.
The Fighting Huggy Bears are ranked sixth in the country, although they will likely fall a bit after last night’s 71-66 loss at home to No. 10 Kansas. West Virginia was up by 16 points in the first half, but couldn’t stop the Jayhawks’ late rally. That’s two losses in a row for the Mountaineers, who also fell at No. 8 Texas Tech 72-71 on Saturday.
All of that being said, they still terrify me. This block by Sagaba Konate could end up being block of the year:
