LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – After falling way outside the Associated Press Top 25 in January, Kentucky men’s basketball finds themselves back in familiar territory on Monday. This week’s poll has the Wildcats ranked 23rd in the nation.
This is the first time the Wildcats have been inside the top 25 of the poll since December 26th. Kentucky, currently alone at third in the SEC standings, has won 10 of their last 13 games, with two final regular season games this week.
Kentucky crushed Auburn over the weekend by 32 points. The final home game of the season will see six Wildcats honored for Senior Night.
The school noted that all six of Oscar Tshiebwe, Antonio Reeves, Jacob Toppin, Sahvir Wheeler, CJ Fredrick, and Brennan Canada will participate in the festivities, but decisions on returning for the 2023-24 season will be made at a later date.
Kentucky hosts Vanderbilt at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday night.
