Kentucky, the newly anointed No. 1 team in the nation in the latest Associated Press Top 25, will look to defend that ranking on Tuesday night when Evansville visits Lexington, Ky.
It is the first time the Wildcats have been ranked at the top since 2016.
Kentucky moved from No. 2 to the top spot after a 69-62 victory over previous No. 1 Michigan State in the Champions Classic in New York, then followed with a 91-49 rout of Eastern Kentucky on Friday.
