This is where we are going to see whether the Wildcats really have the ability to compete in the NCAA Tournament or not. They are going to be on the road against a Tennessee team that has the ability to upset some of the top teams in the SEC. The Volunteers aren’t remarkable, and they aren’t going to get into the dance, but they can beat this Kentucky team if it doesn’t play its best game. UT is all the more dangerous right now after winning back to back games on the road, though there is a big time difference between playing games against South Carolina and Vanderbilt and taking on these Wildcats. But of course, the question about the Cats is how they are going to respond in their first game without F Nerlens Noel. Noel tore his ACL in the lousy loss to the Florida Gators. That was a terrible defeat for UK, and that might be exactly what happens again in this one. This is a very bad trap spot for the Wildcats, and we think that they are going to end up getting blasted firmly back onto the bubble.
Kentucky vs. Tennessee Pick: Tennessee Volunteers +1
Kentucky vs. Tennessee Prediction: Tennessee 76 – Kentucky 70
