Kentucky vs. Eastern Kentucky Online Live Stream, TV Broadcast Info

Everything you need to know about the Kentucky vs. Eastern Kentucky online live stream and TV broadcast, as well as game notes and prediction.

The Kentucky Wildcats are back home in Lexington, Ky. just in time to welcome the Eastern Kentucky Colonels into Rupp Arena.

John Calipari has a chance to take a negative and spin it into a positive with his young team. That 10-point loss the No. 5-ranked Wildcats just took on the road vs. the UCLA Bruins was definitely eye-opening, but Calipari can use it to teach his players.

They were 7-0 before dropping that one, and now the Wildcats will use a home game against the Colonels to get back on track.

Eastern Kentucky has gotten off to a pretty good start, too, at 7-2. The Colonels have forced the fourth-most turnovers in the nation (154).

Let’s see if they can pressure Kentucky’s young backcourt into some errors and possibly piece together a few scoring runs.

Kentucky’s athleticism is top-notch. It’ll get up and down the floor on the Colonels, and Eastern Kentucky won’t capitalize enough off of the turnovers to gain traction for a big run. The Wildcats will get a solid contribution from Ulis and Murray. Labissiere will have another fly-on-the-wall game, and until he breaks out and proves he can be a dominating big man, there’s no reason to expect anything more. Kentucky will contain the Colonels on the perimeter and secure its fifth home win of the season.
