Answer: South Carolina, according to KenPom.
KenPom’s No. 1 team in adjusted defense efficiency just so happens to be Kentucky’s next opponent. The Cats rank second in KenPom offensive efficiency, so something’s gotta give when the two unbeaten SEC squads meet Saturday at 6 pm.
As I mentioned below, South Carolina held Florida to a season-low 53 points Wednesday night. With Kentucky leading the Power Five at a crazy 93.3 points per game, it’ll be interesting to see what the Cats do against a team that doesn’t give up 60 per game.
