Game Preview

No. 6 Kentucky has climbed up the rankings thanks to a stretch in which it has won nine of its past 10 games.

The Wildcats will try to continue their recent success when they play host to Missouri on Tuesday in Lexington, Ken.

Kentucky coach John Calipari credits his team’s newfound depth for its strong start. The Wildcats sport a balanced offensive attack, featuring five players with scoring averages in double figures: Antonio Reaves (19.0 points per game), Rob Dillingham (13.7), Tre Mitchell (12.7), Reed Sheppard (12.6) and D.J. Wagner (12.1).
