    Kentucky looks to rebound from tough loss to North Carolina

    No. 15 Kentucky (5-2) at Georgia St (2-2) 8:00 pm EST

    ATLANTA (Ticker) - Rajon Rondo and No. 15 Kentucky seek a more complete effort before another big matchup.

    The 15th-ranked Wildcats travel to Philips Arena on Tuesday to face Georgia State as a tuneup for a matchup with No. 16 Indiana four days later.

    Rondo and Ravi Moss both posted career highs in points on Saturday, 20 and 17, respectively, but Kentucky absorbed its first loss in 11 games at Rupp Arena with an 83-79 setback to the previously unranked Tar Heels.

    With the win, defending champion North Carolina jumped to 24th in the latest USA Today/ESPN coaches' poll released on Monday, while Kentucky slid five spots.

    Rondo shot 9-of-11 with 16 second-half points as the Wildcats went 51 percent (28-of-55) from the field. But the club was outrebounded by a 37-30 margin, giving up 15 offensive rebounds and 11 second-chance points.

    The Panthers are coming off an 81-51 loss to George Mason. Leading scorer Malcolm Manier scored nine points on 3-of-14 shooting as the team shot 29 percent (16-of-56).

    This is the second meeting between both schools, with Kentucky posting a 77-59 victory on November 26, 2004.
