In-State Rivalries Headline a Full Slate of Games on the Hardwood on Saturday Afternoon- Scott Shapiro’s NCAA Hoops Analysis

A plethora of intriguing out of conference contests, including a number of in-state rivalries, headline a solid slate of games on the hardwood Saturday afternoon. Here are my thoughts on a few of the bigger games on December 8th in NCAA Basketball:   #9 Kentucky Wildcats vs Seton Hall Pirates Kentucky got off to a poor start to the season when they were blown out by Duke 118-84 in their season opener.

2018 Wisconsin Badgers Center Around Taylor

by DS Williamson The 2018 Wisconsin Badgers have some unfinished business from last year after a rip roaring, almost-undefeated run where they tripped up in the final game of the regular season. Their 21-27 loss to the Ohio State Buckeyes in last season’s Big Ten Championship Game is serving as high motivation.
