LSU lost two games over a Thanksgiving tournament way back in late November. Since then, it has lost just twice: once by six points at Houston and then by a point vs. Arkansas.
That makes the Tigers 12–1 in their last 13 and 14–2 in the last 16. Will Wade has his team playing great in his second season as the Head Coach in Baton Rouge.
The Tigers beat Auburn on Saturday behind 39 points, combined, from Skylar Mays and Tremont Waters. Waters added in 10 assists, too.
They only turned it over 10 times in that game but LSU actually has more turnovers than assists on the season. It doesn’t shoot the three-ball well, either, which are a couple of stats that may scare away some bracketologists.
Kentucky crushed South Carolina and then won at Mississippi State last week. It will move up in the AP Poll when it comes out on Monday morning, perhaps even ahead of Virginia.
So after crashing all the way to #19 from #2 in the preseason, Kentucky is nearly all the way back after winning 20 of its last 22 games.
The ‘Cats got 23 from PJ Washington to lead all scorers and nine dimes from point guard Ashton Hagans. Tyler Herro and Reid Travis were also in double-figures.
With both big men on the floor, Kentucky has something that few teams in the country do in two capable post scorers, who can also both play the high-post and pass well to legitimate floor-spacing wings.
Kentucky doesn’t shoot a lot of threes; it will attempts its 400th of the season in this game. There are only 33 teams in all of D-I that have attempted fewer.
But the Wildcats make over 35 percent and, in the SEC, that number is even a little better. It’s been a terrific job by John Calipari.

Free LSU Tigers vs. Kentucky Wildcats NCAAB Prediction: under.
I don’t have a total for this game yet but I think it’s going under because of the lack of outside shooting on both sides and rim protection to boot.
