Things to look out for this week in SEC basketball.

Rupp regroup

Kentucky beat Vanderbilt on Wednesday night at Rupp Arena to snap a two-game losing streak. The Wildcats will look to build on that positive momentum when they continue their homestand Saturday against Missouri. The Tigers, coming off a 63-60 win over Florida, are just 1-6 on the road this season.

Gator revenge

Florida coach Billy Donovan doesn't believe in payback, but the Gators should be motivated in their rematch Saturday at home against Arkansas. The Razorbacks snapped UF's 10-game winning streak with an 80-69 win earlier this month in Fayetteville, Ark. Florida is 12-0 at home this season, while Arkansas is 1-6 on the road.

Rocky roll

Tennessee takes a four-game winning streak into its matchup Saturday at Texas A&M. The Vols have developed a nice inside-out game with sophomore forward Jarnell Stokes and junior guard Jordan McRae.
