Kentucky and South Carolina Play In SEC Men’s Hoops Tuesday Night

By on February 5th, 2013

The Kentucky Wildcats are hosting the South Carolina Gamecocks on Tuesday night in Southeastern Conference men’s basketball. The Wildcats are 4-1 in their past five games, including a big win against Texas A&M 72-68 last Saturday in OT. The victory brings Kentucky’s conference record to 6-2, only behind Florida and Ole Miss.

Meanwhile, the Gamecocks are trying to stay out of the SEC basement as they come in with a 2-6 record in the conference. The Gamecocks lost another close one in their last outing against the Georgia Bulldogs 57-56. South Carolina continues to struggle with keeping possession of the ball as they average just over 16 turnovers a game.

Not only do the Gamecocks have to worry about turnovers, but they need to be concerned about Kentucky’s Nerlens Noel. The freshman is averaging almost a double-double on the season and leads the nation in blocks with just over four and a half per game.

The game will be live on ESPN U from Rupp Arena. Tip is set for 9 p.m.
