PJ Washington is dealing with a sprained foot that was reportedly at the end of Kentucky’s SEC Tournament loss to Tennessee.
The Cats won their first round matchup in the NCAA Tournament by 35 over Abilene Christian with Washington out, but the road will only get more difficult.
Saturday, Kentucky takes on a Wofford team that is 30-4 overall this season and is coming off a double-digit win over a Seton Hall who beat Kentucky in the regular season.
