The two teams have split games so far with LSU winning 87-82 in Baton Rouge and Kentucky winning 77-76 in Lexington.
The rubber match promises to be another highly-contested matchup with UK's Julius Randle seeking his 19th double-double of the season and LSU's Johnny O'Bryant looking for his third 20-plus performance against the Cats this season. Former Bluegrass State "Mr. Basketball" Anthony Hickey will also be looking to carve the Cats up again after posting 20 points and eight assists in last month's matchup at Rupp Arena.
And what will be revealed of John Calipari's promised "tweak" to the UK offense? Will it be a major factor or more of a psychological ploy, as some have suggested?
Kentucky (22-9) seeks to improve its NCAA seeding, while LSU (19-12) is fighting for its postseason life.
