The Valparaiso Crusaders face the Kentucky Wildcats in Rupp Arena on Wednesday. Here’s all the info you need to watch online.

As the Kentucky Wildcats walk into their home at Rupp Arena on Wednesday night, they’ll be in an unfamiliar position. Under John Calipari, it’s not often that they come into a game coming off a loss. That’s simply because they don’t often lose. After being dethroned from No. 1 with a loss on Saturday, though, that’s the situation. Now the Wildcats look to rebound as they take on the Valparaiso Crusaders.

By no means was Kentucky blown out by a bad team or anything on Saturday. On the contrary, they fought to the end with an explosive UCLA team. Following the loss, though, Calipari will look for his team to respond. Isaiah Briscoe will certainly do so as the “veteran” sophomore leader in Lexington. However, freshmen Malik Monk, De’Aaron Fox and Bam Adebayo need to do the same.

Meanwhile, this Valparaiso team is no slouch, also entering Wednesday’s contest at 7-1. Senior forward Alec Peters has been a monster, averaging over 25 points and nine rebounds on the season to this point. He’ll be up against it facing the likes of Adebayo on the inside, but is talented enough to still get his. That said, senior guard Shane Hammink will need to step up and aid Peters as he presents a matchup problem, even for the Wildcats, as a 6-7 guard.

With Kentucky playing, this game will be broadcast on SEC Network. However, you can also stream the matchup online through the WatchESPN service. Access WatchESPN online or through the ESPN app by logging in with a cable or satellite subscription.

Needless to say, you can expect the Wildcats to come out hungry off their first loss. While that could mean bad news for Valpo, the Crusaders still have plenty of talent to contest Calipari’s group with. It’s all about execution, and that’s what the visitors will look to employ on Wednesday night.
