How To Watch

What to Know

Arkansas will be in front of their home fans on Saturday, but a look at the spread shows they might need that home-court advantage. The Arkansas Razorbacks and the Kentucky Wildcats will face off in an SEC battle at 6:00 p.m. ET at Bud Walton Arena. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they’ll have plenty of motivation to get the ‘W’.

Last Wednesday, the Razorbacks took a serious blow against the Rebels, falling 77-51. Arkansas has now taken an ‘L’ in back-to-back games.

Meanwhile, the point spread may have favored Kentucky last Tuesday, but the final result did not. They lost to the Gamecocks on the road by a decisive 79-62 margin. The result shouldn’t come as a shock considering that’s the fewest points Kentucky has scored all season.

Despite the loss, Kentucky had strong showings from Tre Mitchell, who scored 13 points along with five rebounds, and Rob Dillingham, who scored 16 points.

Kentucky struggled to work together and finished the game with only seven assists. They were smoked by their opponents in that department as South Carolina racked up 20 assists.

The Razorbacks bumped their record down to 10-9 with that defeat, which was their sixth straight on the road dating back to last season. That rough patch could be blamed on the team’s lackluster offensive performance across that stretch, as they only averaged 63.5 points per game. As for the Wildcats, their loss dropped their record down to 14-4.

Some high-performance offense is likely on the agenda as Arkansas and Kentucky are some of the highest scoring teams in the league. Arkansas hasn’t had any problem running up the score this season, having averaged 76.2 points per game. However, it’s not like Kentucky (currently ranked first in scoring) struggles in that department as they’ve been averaging 89.9 points per game. With both teams so easily able to put up points, the only question left is who can run the score up higher.

Arkansas came up short against Kentucky in their previous meeting back in March of 2023, falling 88-79. Can Arkansas avenge their defeat or is history doomed to repeat itself? We’ll find out soon enough.
