College Basketball: UK at North Carolina; U of L Faces WKU; IU vs Irish

College basketball action this weekend has the Kentucky Wildcats facing North Carolina.

With two losses this season, UK has dropped to 11th in the latest Associated Press poll.    The Tar Heels are 6-2 and ranked 18th, with victories over Louisville and Michigan State.

Saturday's tipoff at Chapel Hill is at 5:15pm.

The Louisville Cards take on Western Kentucky tomorrow  at the KFC Yum Center.

U of L coach Rick Pitino says he’s generally pleased with his players’ performance so far this season, but it’s difficult to evaluate a team in December.

"We want to win right now, that’s our ultimate concern.   But the most important thing is how we’re playing come February," he said. 

U of L and Western will square off at noon in the Billy Minardi Classic, named for Pitino’s brother-in-law, who died in the 2001 attack on the World Trade Center

Indiana visits Notre Dame Saturday, with tipoff at 3:15pm.
