While Kentucky has fielded some great teams throughout the years, this year won't be remembered as a great UK team.

The Cats are loaded with talent as usual and Jodie Meeks is capable of dumping mega points on anyone at any given moment, Kentucky has failed to show the consistency the fans in Lexington have come to expect.

Into Rupp arena for the Nationally televised match up this week comes the LSU Tigers, the SEC regular season champs and the only ranked team in the conference.

LSU has lost only one game in the conference this season, the opener to Alabama in a game they could of and should have won, it may be what separates the Tigers from a two seed in the NCAA Tournament as they are looking more like a three at this point.

A win on national television on the road at Rupp Arena never hurts anyone but LSU will certainly have to work to earn it and really fire on all cylinders to defend or keep up with Meeks, Patterson, and company.
