Southern @ No. 10 Kentucky

Current Records: Southern 3-5; Kentucky 6-1

What to Know

The #10 Kentucky Wildcats will look to defend their home court Tuesday against the Southern Jaguars at 7 p.m. ET. UK is out to keep their six-game home win streak alive.

The Wildcats took their matchup against the Central Michigan Chippewas last Monday by a conclusive 85-57 score. It was another big night for UK's forward Oscar Tshiebwe, who dropped a double-double on 20 points and 16 rebounds.

Meanwhile, Southern ended up a good deal behind the Akron Zips when they played this past Saturday, losing 79-62.

UK is the favorite in this one, with an expected 27-point margin of victory. Those burned by picking them against the spread last week might want to keep in mind that the squad has not yet dropped back-to-back games against the spread this season.

Kentucky's win lifted them to 6-1 while Southern's defeat dropped them down to 3-5. We'll see if UK can repeat their recent success or if the Jaguars bounce back and reverse their fortune.
