LEXINGTON - The University of Kentucky men’s basketball team will conclude non-conference action on Wednesday when it plays host to Eastern Michigan University at 6 p.m. in Rupp Arena. UK is 7-1 at home this season. EMU is 0-4 in games played away from its home.

UK dropped a heartbreaker at No. 3 Louisville on Saturday despite some valiant effort from a multitude of players. Sophomore Ryan Harrow posted 17 points and three assists while not committing a turnover in 39 minutes of action. Freshman Archie Goodwin had a game-high 22 points, while sophomore Kyle Wiltjer drilled four 3-pointers on the night.

The Wildcats and Eastern Michigan have never met on the hardwood in program history. This is the second first-time opponent of the season for UK after also facing Lafayette for the first time this season.

Scouting Eastern Michigan

Eastern Michigan owns a 7-5 overall mark headed into the game with UK. The Eagles have yet to win on the road this season, but earned a home victory over Purdue on Dec. 8. The Eagles are paced by a trio of players averaging double-figure scoring efforts led by 12.3 from Derek Thompson. UK and Eastern Michigan will be first-time opponents on Wednesday.
