Kentucky bounces back with a win over Mississippi State with a big night for Nick Richards who had a career high 27 points and EJ Montgomery who had 12 points. They head on the road to take on SEC rival Tennessee in Knoxville.
This marks the 228th meeting between Kentucky and Tennessee in which Kentucky leads with 155 wins and Tennessee with 72. Kentucky won the first meeting and Tennessee has won the last 2.
Tennessee will be without one of their star players as Lamonte Turner, as he decided to end his career before SEC play due to shoulder issues he has had. Tennessee also lost some key players last season to the NBA Draft in Grant Williams, Admiral Schofield, and Jordan Bone. We will see how the Volunteers do without these star players on the court.
You can catch this game this Saturday at 1 p.m. ET on CBS.
