Eastern Michigan at Kentucky: live stream, start time, game info and more

After suffering a loss in the opening game to top-ranked Michigan State, the Kentucky Wildcats were rolling along rather nicely, until they got one heck of a scare the other night from Cleveland State. John Calipari and the Wildcats were able to escape with a 68-61 win, but there was definite concern within Rupp Arena.

But, Calipari looked at the close victory in a positive light, as a learning experience his young team can use going forward:

“It was a game we needed,” said Calipari, whose team trailed by as many as 11 in the second half to the 3-3 Vikings. “Close wins are better learning experiences. We fought, which was a good thing. We learned about our team.”

On Wednesday, the Wildcats will be back home inside Rupp Arena when they welcome in the 5-0 Eastern Michigan Eagles. While we never like to look at things on paper, this is an EMU team that routed that same Cleveland State team that gave Kentucky a good run earlier this month.

Here’s how you can watch all the action as it plays out on Wednesday between EMU and Kentucky:

Date: Nov. 27

Start Time: 4 PM ET

Location: Lexington, KY

Arena: Rupp Arena

Live Stream: ESPN3
