The No. 13 Kentucky Wildcats will be back at it in Rupp Arena on Friday when welcoming the Ohio Bobcats to Lexington.
Kentucky (2-1) was able to pick up win No. 2 on the year on Tuesday when overwhelming Mount St. Mary’s for an 80-55 victory. The Wildcats got another dominant performance out of Oscar Tshiebwe, who put up 24 points and 16 rebounds in the win. Defensively, they held the Mountaineers to just 34% shooting.
Ohio (3-0) remained unbeaten on the young season when dispatching of Robert Morris 85-71 on Monday. The Bobcats got a pair of double-double efforts out of both Jason Carter and Ben Vander Plas in the win.

Ohio comes into Friday as a Top 100 team in KenPom rankings, so it should give Kentucky a push in some portions of the game. The Wildcats are too talented, however, and the safe play is to lay it with them at home on a Friday night.
