No question, SEC basketball is better than it has been in a number of years.
The league should send its most teams to the NCAA Tournament since 2011, including the presumptive No. 1 overall seed in Kentucky.
The question, though, is if any of these teams can touch the Wildcats. Granted, few teams in any league can approach the Wildcats this season. There's no shame if Arkansas, Georgia, Texas A&M and Ole Miss can't finish off the Wildcats; Kentucky isn’t 28-0 because the SEC is a mediocre league.
Tied for the best start in school history, top-ranked Kentucky looks to rewrite the record books on Tuesday evening, as the Wildcats take on the Tennessee Volunteers in an SEC showdown at Thompson- Boling Arena.
Continuing their quest for perfection, the top-ranked Kentucky Wildcats close out a two-game road trip on Tuesday evening, as they take on the LSU Tigers in an SEC clash at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center.
Kentucky isn’t the only team chasing history in the SEC.
The Wildcats took another team’s best shot Saturday in a 67-61 win over Florida, but as has been the case in close calls all season, Kentucky continued its march to an undefeated regular season and more.
That Florida gave Kentucky a game is little surprise to John Calipari, who has come to expect that every team is looking for its signature moment of the season when it faces the Wildcats.
