The Ohio State Buckeyes are facing their biggest test of the college basketball season Saturday afternoon in Lexington against the Kentucky Wildcats. Kentucky's only loss of the season came against UCLA in Pauley Pavilion, where the Bruins won 87-77. The Wildcats are led by Tyler Ulis, Isaiah Briscoe, and Jamal Murray, who are all averaging over 12 points per contest.
The Buckeyes are coming off of a 13-point victory over Northern Illinois, after suffering their worst loss of the season against UConn on the road. This will be the second real road test for Ohio State, who desperately needs to play better if they want to keep this one close. If they can hit their free throws, play solid defense, and limit turnovers, they could have a chance. We might even see some Mickey Mitchell in this game, who was recently cleared by the NCAA to play.
