What you need to know about Kentucky

Kentucky turned in a dominant performance against the Tennessee Volunteers last Saturday. UK wrapped it up with a 70-55 win on the road. The Wildcats had double-digit scoring from four players: forward Isaiah Jackson (16), guard Davion Mintz (15), forward Keion Brooks Jr. (10), and forward Olivier Sarr (10).

The Wildcats have now won three games in a row as they look to build towards an SEC Tournament that they’ll likely need to win in order to make the 2021 NCAA Tournament. Kentucky is shooting 40.6 percent from the three-point line during that span and will need to continue lighting it up from deep to continue this run.

What you need to know about Florida

Meanwhile, Florida didn’t have too much trouble with the Auburn Tigers on the road last Tuesday, as the Gators won 74-57. The Gators can attribute much of their success to guard Tre Mann, who dropped a double-double on 19 points and 13 rebounds.

Mann is averaging 14.3 points, 5.7 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game this season and will need to step it up after scoring just seven points on 2-of-9 shooting during a 76-58 loss to Kentucky on Jan. 9. The Gators allowed Kentucky to shoot 55.8 percent from the floor in that defeat and will have to limit Kentucky’s perimeter scoring to avenge that loss.
