What to Know
The Mount St. Mary's Mountaineers are staying on the road on Tuesday to face off against the #13 Kentucky Wildcats at 7 p.m. ET Nov. 16 at Rupp Arena at Central Bank Center. The Wildcats will be strutting in after a victory while Mount St. Mary's will be stumbling in from a defeat.
A win for the Mountaineers just wasn't in the stars this past Saturday as the team never even grasped a temporary lead. They ended up on the wrong side of a painful 80-60 walloping at the Saint Joseph's Hawks' hands. The top scorer for Mount St. Mary's was guard Dakota Leffew (15 points).
Meanwhile, UK simply couldn't be stopped last Friday, as they easily beat the Robert Morris Colonials at home 100-60. Six players on UK scored in the double digits: guard Kellan Grady (19), forward Oscar Tshiebwe (14), forward Daimion Collins (14), guard Davion Mintz (13), forward Keion Brooks Jr. (13), and guard Tyty Washington Jr. (10).
Mount St. Mary's is the clear underdog, so they're hoping it's the size of the fight that determines this one. Those betting on them against the spread shouldn't have high expectations for them since the squad is 0-2 ATS when expected to lose.
Mount St. Mary's' loss took them down to 1-2 while Kentucky's victory pulled them up to 1-1. In Kentucky's win, Oscar Tshiebwe posted a double-double on 20 rebounds and 14 points along with three blocks and Kellan Grady had 19 points. We'll see if the Mountaineers have a strategy for dealing with them or if they lead their team to another successful outing.
