Ta'Lon Cooper is the do-it-all guard for the Gamecocks. This season, Cooper leads the team in assists as well as field goal percentage, where he is shooting an astounding 48% from the field and 41% from three. Kentucky has had issues with defending the perimeter this season. Well, they've had issues defending in general. If hands are down around Cooper, then the Cats could be setting themselves up for a miserable night in Columbia.
