After their loss at LSU in their first game of the 2022 calendar year, the Kentucky Wildcats have answered many fans’ concerns with a three-game winning streak that included a 107-79 beatdown of then ranked No. 22 Tennessee.

The win over the Volunteers was the first for Kentucky over a ranked opponent so far this season and moved them to 14-3 overall and 4-1 in SEC play.

Kentucky’s wins over Vanderbilt and Tennessee last week have helped them make a jump from No. 18 to No. 12 in the AP Poll as their stock continues to rise nationwide.

With a critical week of road trips against the final two teams undefeated in SEC play in Texas A&M and No. 2 Auburn upcoming, many fans are asking how far this Kentucky team is capable of going come March?

In another year of great parity around the nation and Kentucky playing some of their best basketball throughout the past month, many believe they’re a potential final four team?
