It’s about time. No. 1 Tennessee will finally meet with the fifth-ranked Kentucky Wildcats tonight in Lexington at Rupp Arena. The Vols will put their perfect conference record on the line tonight, looking for their 20th straight win overall.
Tennessee swept Kentucky in the regular season last year before losing to the Wildcats in the championship game of the SEC Tournament.
Kentucky sits at 20-4, fresh off a controversial loss to LSU earlier in the week. The loss dropped the Wildcats to third in the SEC standings behind LSU. In what has become a three team race for the regular season SEC crown, this is a very important game.
