LSU waltzes into Rupp Arena with a 2-0 league mark and ahead of UK in the standings. I think Beyond the Arc's Rob Dauster put it best:
4:00 pm: LSU @ No. 15 Kentucky: LSU has a better record in the SEC than Kentucky does. Enjoy it while it lasts.
I fully expect Tiger fans to blame Les Miles for a loss in this game.
Kentucky leads the series 79 to 24.

Storm Warren does a little bit of everything for the Tigers. Predict his rebounds/blocks/steals. [2 points each] 1/2/0

- On the other side of the court LSU has held both its SEC opponents to under .85 ppp to start conference play. Does the UK offense score 1 ppp or better? [ +/- 1 point] yes
- LSU has also been very stingy in the first half of each game, allowing 6 points to Auburn and 17 to Arkansas. Does UK score 28 points or more in the first half? [ +/- 1 point] yes
