LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Though home has been perfect for Kentucky, the Wildcats insist they can be just as successful elsewhere.
Now, they'll get the chance to prove it.
The 11th-ranked Wildcats (15-4, 5-1 Southeastern Conference) have suffered all of their losses this season away from Rupp Arena. It's been two weeks since the overtime loss at Arkansas Kentucky blames on mental breakdowns, including failing to cover a player who slammed home a last-second dunk.
Still, a 3-0 homestand has Kentucky confident of carrying its momentum into hostile environments such as LSU's Maravich Center for Tuesday night's game against the Tigers (12-6, 3-3).
Kentucky will play four of its next five games on the road and aims to show its poise against an LSU squad that's 8-2 at home including back-to-back SEC wins.
