GAMETIME: Kentucky vs. LSU

As the B-Boys might have said, circa 1993, it's time for livin'.

Kentucky returns to the "friendly confines" of Rupp Arena hoping to both exorcise (some losing demons) and exercise (their postseason form).

It's really quite simple today, as simple as it's been all year: the Cats have got to win. Any loss, however it happens, is a real nightmare, and would call into question the Cats' legitimate NCAA hopes.

Truz goes all out to help us preview the game before the action starts.

What to look for:
* Dear Leader. How will the juniors respond to a three-game slide, out of the top 25, down the SEC ladder? Will they buck up, start to make better decisions and take care of business? Or is it more of the same?

* Pay It Forward. Can Kentucky finish the year strong, shake off the troubles of the past week and get the fans back in the fold?

* No Baby, No Cry. If Glen "Big Baby" Davis does not dress/travel for this game, can Kentucky take advantage and make a statement on ESPN?
