Desperate for a victory, the Kentucky Wildcats (1-5, 0-0) will pay a visit to their arch-rivals Saturday as they’ll take on the Louisville Cardinals (5-1, 1-0) at the KFC Yum! Center.
The Cardinals enter play coming off their first loss of the season as they were blown out by No. 9 Wisconsin in an 85-48 loss last Saturday. Kentucky are losers of five straight and have not won a game since opening night when they defeated Morehead State at Rupp Arena.
Since John Calipari’s arrival at UK (2009), Kentucky has dominated the series between the in-state rivals as the Cats are 9-2 against the Cards in the Calipari era. All-time, UK leads the series 37-16 and have won each of the three last matchups.
