Kentucky prepares for its game against Tennessee at Rupp Arena.

Still stinging from Saturday’s loss at Missouri, Kentucky men’s basketball hopes to pull the train back on the track by gaining some revenge when Tennessee comes to Rupp Arena for a key SEC matchup Tuesday night.

Up by eight points over the Vols at halftime in Knoxville on Jan. 6, Kentucky was outscored 47-28 in the second half on the way to a 76-65 loss. A month later, Tennesse is 17-5 overall and 7-3 in the SEC standings. Kentucky, ranked 24th, is 17-6 overall and 6-4 in league play. UK has not lost at home to UT since 2006.

ESPN will have the 7 p.m. telecast as we blog live from our perch atop the Rupp floor. Join us with your questions, comments, etc. You can use your Facebook or Twitter log-in, or just use the regular comments box.
