The Tigers are coming off a big victory over the Alabama Crimson Tide at home. Kentucky is coming off a relatively easy win over the South Carolina Gamecocks.

What I hope to see today:

  • Fewer turnovers. In SEC play, Kentucky has been turning it over a lot, and is currently the 9th worst ballhandling team in the league.
  • More involvement by Kyle Wiltjer. The last game he just wasn't involved enough in the offense.
  • Ryan Harrow to build off his last game. He took fewer shots, made them all, and distributed the ball well.
  • Julius Mays to keep up his level of play. Mays has arguably been playing better than anyone except perhaps Nerlens Noel

Win this game, and Kentucky will have its longest winning streak of the year, and that is a very good thing.

Go, 'Cats!
