Kentucky-Tennessee: NCAA Basketball 2/21/09

Mitch WilsonSenior Writer IFebruary 20, 2009

Tennessee (16-9) at Kentucky (18-8)

The Line: Kentucky - 3 1/2

Saturday February 21, 2008 1 PM EST


Two of the best in the SEC match up, trying to rebound from their last games where they were beaten on the road as favorites. This is a rematch of a game held back in early January in Knoxville where Kentucky's Jodie Meeks lit up the Volunteers like a Christmas tress and put a whooping on Tennessee.

While Tennessee will look to send the crowd at Rupp Arena home in a foul mood, their task won't be easy as the Cats are 12-4 in Lexington. While Tennessee has the strength of schedule that can carry them far with the selection committee, they are going to have to put together some meaningful games to end up in the top half of the bracket.

Both of these teams enter this one at 7-4 in the SEC.  The Vols have won four of their last six while UK has lost four of their last 6.
