The University of Kentucky may be the defending national champion in men's hoops, but it needs a win tonight to show the nation it hasn't fallen too far off.

The Wildcats travel to Ole Miss this evening to take on a quietly-ranked 16th in the country Rebels squad in a key SEC matchup. The Rebels are 6-0 in conference, while John Calipari's unranked Wildcats are 4-2 and in need of a nice win to bolster its tournament resume.
