For those of you with a gambling itch for women’s basketball that needs to be scratched, Kentucky is favored by 8.5 points over Tennessee in tonight’s game. That line is according to SportBet.com, a website I had never heard of until about two hours ago.
As for the game’s storyline, the Cats find themselves at No. 12 in the new poll, seven spots ahead of the Lady Vols, when it was released earlier today. Matthew Mitchell’s squad is looking to avenge its three losses to Tennessee last season, beginning with the one-point loss in Memorial Coliseum and then double-digit losses in Knoxville and in the SEC Tournament.
Tonight’s game will be televised on ESPN2 as part of ESPN’s Big Monday. Tip-off is set for 7:00 pm and students can get in free with a valid ID.
