Kentucky Wildcat Basketball: SEC 'Cat stats

Morgan Freeman cares about stats, and so should you. - USA TODAY Sports

Seven games into Kentucky's SEC schedule, and it's time to evaluate how the Wildcats are performing against their conference brethren, both as individuals and as a team.

As the Kentucky Wildcats (14-6, 5-2) prepare to exact road court revenge on the Texas A&M Aggies this evening in College Station, Texas (with UK's improved RPI standing on the line), I thought it time to take a look at how the 'Cats are performing in the SEC through seven games.
