The only game this week between two ranked teams is Wednesday night - specifically Kentucky vs. Louisville at the KFC Yum! Center.
Tip is set for 7:04 ET.
Oddsmakers have basically made it a coin-flip game.
This will be the first game for Kentucky since Malik Monk scored 47 points in Saturday's 103-100 win over North Carolina. It's unlikely Monk will approach that number again vs. Louisville, if only because the pace of play will be slower and Louisville has the nation's best defensive efficiency rating. But, either way, Monk enters averaging an SEC-best 21.9 points in 28.9 minutes per game.
UK is No. 6 in the Top 25 (and one).
Louisville is No. 9.
