Texas-Arlington at Kentucky is the CSS featured game for Tuesday. Tip-off is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET with Matt Stewart handling the play-by-play and Kyle Macy offering color commentary.

Kentucky is loaded with young one-and-done talent. ‘Cats head coach John Calipari does a tremendous job of recruiting and landing the nation’s top talent. But, getting them to stay past their freshman season has been almost impossible as the glamour and glitz of the NBA continues to attract.

Once again Calipari sports a new class of talented freshmen including the Harrison twins, Andrew and Aaron, from Richmond, Texas. However, leading the way for the freshman class is 6-foot-9 power forward Julius Randle from Dallas who averages 20.5 points per game.

Scott Cross and his 2-2 UT Arlington Mavericks are anchored by senior 6-foot-1 point guard Regar Dowell, a transfer from Oklahoma State who averages 26 points per game.

The pros at CSS will help get you ready for the college basketball season on Thursday as they present the ACC and SEC Hoops Preview Shows. The ACC Hoops Preview Show starts at 9:30 p.m. ET with the SEC version being offered at 10.
