The Kentucky Wildcats (12-6, 3-2 SEC) are back home to host the LSU Tigers (10-6, 1-4 SEC), who are coming off their first SEC win against the Texas A&M Aggies.
|Coach: John Calipari (114-20 at Kentucky; 517-158 in 21st season overall) |
Last game: Lost to Alabama 59-55
Coach: Johnny Jones (10-6 at LSU; 215-168 in 13th season overall)
Also, UK freshman Willie Cauley-Stein, who has missed the last two games after minor knee surgery, is in street clothes for today’s game with LSU. Hopefully this is a precaution so that he’s 100% when the Cats travel to Ole Miss on Tuesday night, in what will be one the Cats’ toughest game of the year. As of now, UK already has two losses in the SEC, and a third either today or Tuesday would all but eliminate them from the SEC regular-season title race as Florida and Ole Miss sit at 5-0 in the SEC.
