W2W4: What to Watch for in SEC men's basketball.
Rocky Top rivalry
Tennessee is desperate for a league win after falling to 0-2 in SEC play with an 81-75 overtime loss to Florida. The Vols will host in-state rival Vanderbilt on Saturday in search of their first league win and first win under interim coach Tony Jones.
After losing its first 12 league games last season, LSU is off to a surprising 2-0 start in SEC play this season. But the Tigers will get a stiff test Saturday afternoon at Rupp Arena against No. 13 Kentucky.
Avoiding a letdown
Florida is feeling pretty good following its 81-75 win at Tennessee which snapped a five-game losing streak at Thompson-Boling Arena. Now, the Gators must avoid a letdown at the O'Connell Center on Saturday at 1:30 p.m. against a South Carolina team that was picked in the preseason to finish last in the SEC East. Florida's last afternoon tip-off at home resulted in a 71-68 overtime loss to Jacksonville.
