The newly ranked #1 Kentucky will host the Evansville Purple Aces at Rupp Arena this Tuesday. This is the first meeting between the two teams. Kentucky looks to continue their momentum as they knocked off Michigan State in the Champions Classic and blew out Eastern Kentucky at Rupp Arena.
Evansville’s head coach brought in seven newcomers to the team after they lost four starters. One of the newcomers is the younger brother of former Cat Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Thomasi Gilgeous-Alexander. Expect the Aces to shoot and shoot often from beyond the 3 point line. Just last year they shot a school record of 776 3 point attempts. That is something Kentucky needs to be aware of. Tune into the first meeting between Kentucky and Evansville this Tuesday at 7 p.m. ET on SEC Network.
