Kentucky is coming off a much needed win over Auburn defeating them 73-66 and clinching their 49th SEC regular season conference title.
This marks the 229th meeting between Kentucky and Tennessee in which Kentucky leads with 156 wins and Tennessee with 72. Kentucky won the first meeting and Tennessee has won the last 2. Kentucky defeated Tennessee in Knoxville on February 8, 77-64.
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 Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET on ESPN.
