Another day, another SEC matchup for the Kentucky Wildcats. This time, they’re gearing up to play the South Carolina Gamecocks at home.

Kentucky has been on a complete tear over their last eight games, winning several of them over some talented opponents. They’ve also won 11 of their last 12, which has propelled them back into the top-five teams of the country.

PJ Washington has developed into the star this team needs over the last 4 games. He is averaging 20.5 PPG, 10.8 RPG, shooting 51.7% from the field and 46.2% from beyond the arc. If he continues to play like this, not only will Kentucky be considered a legitimate championship contender, but he will inch his way into the lottery come draft day.

South Carolina had a horrendous start to the season, but they bounced back in a big way in conference play where they are 6-2. It will be a fight, but it’s a fight that Kentucky should win.

The game starts at 7:00 pm EST on the SEC Network. You can watch it online using Watch ESPN, the Watch ESPN app and fuboTV. You can listen to an online radio stream via UK Athletics.
