LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Kentucky looks ready for its annual showdown with archrival Louisville.
Jodie Meeks scored 23 points and Patrick Patterson added 15 points and nine rebounds as the Wildcats rolled by Central Michigan 84-52 on Monday for their sixth straight win to setup a showdown with the No. 18 Cardinals on Sunday.
