    I’d take Hogs all day. I think they win easily.

      Could be… We just barely beat them last year and they’ve returned basically their whole team. They have 3 of the top 20 scorers in the SEC, including 2 of the Top 5. We’re both 3-1 in the SEC, this game is very important. Hopefully we bounce back from our loss and come in there ready to compete. Note: Arkansas currently has the #5 overall ranked class for 2020 with four 4-star players coming in.

      Have you watched them play? They’re terrible. Non-existent shot selection. First guy with the ball shoots.

    I’m betting $100 on Kentucky to win straight up. Go Cats!

    I think Musselman will follow the Bruce Pearl playbook like South Carolina did in the 2nd half and the Hogs win by double digits.

    People should pay attention to the crowd noise when UK goes on the road and compare that to the crowd noise at Rupp Arena. There is no comparison in the noise level.
