Ohio State preview

Kentucky faces a tough opponent as they take on Ohio State in the CBS Sports Classic in Las Vegas.  After a heartbreaking upset loss to unranked Utah in a mid-week late night game, the Cats need to get a win over both #5 Ohio State and #3 Louisville before they start their conference play. This will be the 20th meeting between Kentucky and Ohio. Ohio State won both the first and last meetings, 46-30 on 1/2/1933 and 74-67 on 12/19/2015

The Buckeyes have always been one of those tough teams to take on and after a great start to this year’s season they may just be tough to take on as Kentucky is still trying to figure out just who they are. The Wildcats can’t have back to back losses in Las Vegas. The Wildcats are going to need to play as a team and not individuals. A player to look out for is returning junior, Kaleb Wesson; he posted team high last season, in 14.6 points, 6.9 rebounds, and 25.9 minutes per game last season. He led the team with 21 blocks; he recorded five double-doubles and scored in double figures in 24 games.
