Gillispie Feels Meeks Return Will Help Wildcats

By  | 

LEXINGTON, KY -- Reeling Kentucky might be getting the jolt it needs from the return of guard Jodie Meeks.

The sophomore has been out for over a month with a stress fracture in his pelvis but could play tomorrow when the Wildcats
(4-4) visit Houston (9-1).

Coach Billy Gillispie says Meeks gives Kentucky a totally different dimension offensively and defensively.

Kentucky could use a confidence boost after Saturday's loss to
UAB, a game the Wildcats led by 14 with 10 minutes to go before
letting it slip away.

Houston nearly knocked off the Wildcats at Rupp Arena last year.
