Ohio @ No. 13 Kentucky
Current Records: Ohio 3-0; Kentucky 2-1
The Ohio Bobcats will square off against the #13 Kentucky Wildcats on the road at 7 p.m. ET Friday at Rupp Arena at Central Bank Center.
While not quite a landslide, the matchup between the Bobcats and the Robert Morris Colonials on Monday was still a pretty decisive one as Ohio wrapped it up with an 85-71 win at home.
Meanwhile, UK made easy work of the Mount St. Mary’s Mountaineers on Tuesday and carried off an 80-55 victory. Kentucky’s forward Oscar Tshiebwe was one of the most active players for the team, dropping a double-double on 24 points and 16 boards along with three blocks. That makes it three consecutive games in which Tshiebwe has had at least 16 rebounds.
Ohio is the clear underdog, so they’re hoping it’s the size of the fight that determines this one. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread, however, as they are currently on a three-game streak of ATS wins.
Their wins bumped Ohio to 3-0 and UK to 2-1. Watch the contest and check back on CBS Sports to find out who keeps up the positive energy and who hits a stumbling block.
