What to watch for
Kentucky is coming off a 78-57 win against Arkansas, but had previously lost three straight. South Carolina topped the Wildcats earlier this season, defeating them 81-64 in Lexington on Jan. 21 in Wilson’s first game back from an ankle injury. Forward Alexis Jennings, a Kentucky transfer, was a big factor, scoring 17 points and grabbing seven rebounds.
