The Kentucky Wildcats are set to face the South Carolina Gamecocks this Tuesday at Colonial Life Arena,Kentucky needs a win to keep pace with Florida and Auburn atop the SEC standings. The Tigers are undefeated atop the SEC, while Florida is tied with Kentucky at 4-1 in league play.South Carolina (11-6 overall, 2-3 conference) boasts an impressive defense along with the ability to rebound the ball offensively. The Gamecocks can get to the line at a high rate as well, but the team struggles offensively everywhere else.
South Carolina is coming off of an historic basketball season in which head coach Frank Martin led the Gamecocks to its first ever Final Four appearance. Notable losses from that season include Sindarious Thornwell, and the Gamecocks have struggled to find its footing thus far in the 2017-18 college basketball season. Though, it’s worth noting that before getting hot at the right time in the NCAA tournament, the South Carolina Gamecocks registered nine losses during the regular season plus a quick loss in the SEC tournament.
Kentucky is coming off of yet another impressive season in which the Cats lost a close game in the Elite 8 of the NCAA tournament to North Carolina. Prior to the tournament, Kentucky plowed through the regular season with only five losses. Kentucky also won the SEC tournament with victories over Georgia, Alabama and Arkansas.The 2017-18 Kentucky team is a quality team, but the season is somewhat quiet and unheralded compared to many of the Calipari-era seasons. As always, the team is quite talented and an appearance in the NCAA tournament is expected.
