Following the Kentucky Wildcats’ narrow victory over the Vanderbilt Commodores on Friday night, the table is now set for a third matchup with the Tennessee Volunteers.

Both led by premier coaches with deep, talented rosters, Saturday’s semifinal should be one of the best SEC basketball games we see all year. The two teams split their regular-season series with the home team prevailing in each of the two games.

Now, with the SEC Tournament semifinals at a neutral site, we’ll see if Kentucky has what it takes to knock off Tennessee and advance to the SEC Championship.
