What you need to know about Kentucky

UK came up short against the Ole Miss Rebels on Tuesday, falling 70-62. The Wildcats got double-digit scores from four players: forward Keion Brooks Jr. (16), forward Olivier Sarr (15), forward Isaiah Jackson (13), and guard Davion Mintz (10).

However, Kentucky shot just 37.5 percent from the floor in the loss. The Wildcats have now lost in each of the nine games where they’ve failed to shoot better than 40 percent from the floor, so getting into a rhythm offensively continues to be critical.
