It’s Kentucky vs Alabama on the college basketball game schedule today, with the number one ranked Wildcats putting their undefeated record on the line against the unranked SEC rival Crimson Tide. Kentucky is 16-0 on the season, 3-0 in the conference, and is coming off a dominant 86-37 win over Missouri. But Alabama, with a 12-4 overall record, should put up more of a fight. Today’s game has an afternoon start time and airs on a national TV channel as well as a live stream online option.
Kentucky has already knocked off four ranked teams this season including Kansas, Texas, UNC and Louisiana. But two of its last three wins have been decided in overtime, both against unranked teams, suggesting that the Wildcats may be due for a defeat. Alabama is coming off a loss to South Carolina which snapped its six game winning streak. Both teams are aiming for the Tournament of 64 this season, with Kentucky the odds-on favorite to win it all. Kentucky’s strategy of recruiting star players who only plan to play for one season before heading to the NBA has been controversial, but effective.
Today’s Kentucky vs Alabama NCAA college basketball game has a scheduled start time of 4:00pm eastern time and airs on TV channel ESPN in all markets across the nation. The game also airs as a live stream online.
