Kentucky Wildcats Basketball: Reports say Jon Hood is out against Marshall

Although unconfirmed yet by UK, reports say that G Jon Hood will miss the Marshall game this afternoon due to Mono. This is the second time so far this season it has been reported yet unconfirmed by UK that a player has Mono, the first being Ryan Harrow in November.

Kentucky’s early season losses doesn’t faze Marshall, the Thundering Herd know UK is difficult to upset, much less at Rupp Arena.

Bleacher Report argues that Kentucky, not Florida, is still the favorite to win the SEC this year. Even though Florida may be playing good basketball now, Kentucky will be playing great basketball come February.

“As Ryan Harrow begins to settle in at point guard, Archie Goodwin turns his attention to scoring at shooting guard and Alex Poythress starts to utilize his size and speed to create the worst type of mismatches imaginable, the Wildcats should have a great stretch of conference play followed by an SEC championship in March.”

No. 7  UK Hoops went on the road to the West Coast and handled UCSB 66-38, led by A’dia Mathies 19 points.

And last, I leave you with the top play on SportsCenter last night, from none other than Eric Bledsoe:
