The SEC Tournament often represents a home court environment for the Kentucky Wildcats, and “big blue nation” will get their first chance to root on their squad when they take on the LSU Tigers on Friday night in Atlanta.
Kentucky enters the SEC Tournament as the #2 seed, but the Wildcats have struggled mightily at times down the stretch of the season. However, UK is still a significant favorite against LSU in this #2/#7 match-up, and on a player by player basis, the Wildcats may have more talent than any other team in the country. Kentucky has a balanced unit, and if they can create efficient offense, it could be a breezy evening.
On the LSU side, the Tigers have a fast-paced, talented squad of their own. The 7th-seeded Tigers eased past Alabama in their second round match-up on Thursday, but Kentucky is a giant step up in competition, and LSU has their work cut out for them.
