Rupp Arena is a tough place to play, but since John Calipari arrived in Lexington, it’s been even more of a nightmare — specifically for non-conference opponents. The Wildcats are 54-1 in their last 55 home games against non-conference opponents. Kentucky enters Tuesday night as the top-ranked team in the nation hosting non-conference opponent Texas-Arlington.
The Wildcats also expect forward Alex Poythress back, who has sat out the last two games with an undisclosed illness.
Kentucky routed Montana State 86-28 on Saturday night, continuing to roll after last Tuesday’s dominance against then-No. 5 Kansas on a neutral court in Indianapolis — holding the Jayhawks to just 19.6 percent shooting in a 32-point win. The Wildcats are statistically monstrous across the board, and are off to their best start since 2011. That year they cut the nets down in New Orleans led by freshmen Anthony Davis and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.
