Kentucky Falls In Both Polls

As expected, Kentucky (16-6, 4-4 SEC) dropped in both the AP Poll and the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll’s, after losses to Mississippi and Florida.

After moving into the top 10 last week in the Associated Press Poll, Kentucky dropped eight spots this week to number 18.

In the USA Today/ESPN Coaches Poll, Kentucky took a similar tumble. Last week they moved up five spots from number 16 to number 11, only to drop this week down to number 18.

The Cats received 519 points in the Associated Press Top 25 poll and 246 points in the USA TODAY/ESPN Top 25 coaches poll.

Ohio State remains atop both polls with the unanimous vote. Kansas is second followed by Texas, Pittsburgh and Duke to round out the top 5 in both polls.

The Big East is dominating both polls with eight teams ranked in the AP Poll, including six of the top twelve.

The Cats are back in the friendly confines of Rupp on Tuesday evening as Bruce Pearl and the Volunteers come to town for the ESPN prime time game. Tip is scheduled at 9:00 p.m. ET. On Saturday, the Wildcats are back on the road again, this time at memorial Gym in Nashville to take on number 23/24 Vanderbilt.

This is the last two of, what I considered, the toughest four game stretch of the year. Kentucky is 0-2 with losses to ole Miss and Florida. To stay in the SEC race, the Cats must win the next two…

Go Cats!!!
