The No. 2 Jayhawks and No. 4 Wildcats may feature the top backcourts in college basketball this season, and Fox will be challenged by fellow national player or the year candidate Frank Mason III of Kansas.
Fox, who was recruited out of high school by Kansas, says it's a tough matchup for a freshman to take on Mason, a senior who has been through many battles over his years with the Jayhawks.
It's expected to be a high-scoring affair as UK is averaging 92.2 points per game and KU is posting 84.6 points per game.
Tipoff at Rupp Arena is slated for 6:15 p.m. ET on ESPN.
