Good morning BBN!
After a rough performance against Alabama on Saturday, the Kentucky Wildcats are returning to Rupp Arena on Tuesday night as they welcome the South Carolina Gamecocks to town.
Currently sitting at 10-5 (1-2) on the season, the Cats will be looking to get back on track with another big game scheduled for Saturday as they head to Knoxville to take on the Tennessee Volunteers.
Going into tonight’s game all eyes will be on the offense against the Gamecocks. Kentucky had their second-worst field-goal percentage in the Calipari era on Saturday, as that just adds to the criticism of this offensive style that has been played this season. Not saying it needs to be perfect, but there does need to be some progress.
South Carolina comes to Lexington after getting smashed by Tennessee in Columbia on Saturday, as they will also look to bounce back and hope to get their season on track.
Led by former top recruit GG Jackson, the Gamecocks currently sit at 7-8 on the season, and are 0-2 in the SEC.
The Cats will need to make a statement tonight. I would expect a determined team to run out of the locker room for this one.
