Kentucky has four regular season games left, two on the road and two at home. Both of Kentucky's road games look like winnable contests. One game is at Arkansas on Wednesday night and the other ending the regular season at Tennessee.
Both the Razorbacks and the Volunteers have had their moments of success and moments of struggle, but the Wildcats cannot overlook their games against these two teams. Arkansas isn't likely a contender to reach the NCAA Tournament, but they are always motivated when they face the Wildcats. Additionally, Arkansas is known to have one of the best fan-bases in the SEC, so you know they will be primed for the game.
And as always, facing Tennessee in Knoxville is a daunting task. The Volunteers are a talented team that will want to avenge their defeat in Lexington a few weeks ago. Bruce Pearl will have his team ready and the Wildcats must be prepared for likely the most hostile environment they've played in since the Louisville game.
The Cats will also face two teams at home who defeated them previously this season. Both Florida and Vanderbilt are ahead of the Wildcats in the SEC standings and are very capable of defeating Kentucky in Rupp.
Calipari and his staff will no doubt show the team the previous games' film and show them the mistakes that led to a two point defeat in Gainsville and a four point defeat in Nashville.
Kentucky's biggest struggles have been on the road, so winning at Fayetteville and at Knoxville will be difficult. The Wildcats need to clean up the errors from their previous road games and if they can fix the trouble spots, there is a good chance that Kentucky could finish the regular season on a six game winning streak.
Kentucky has a real opportunity to finish the SEC season strong and end the regular season at 11-5. Ending the season on a hot streak could go a long way in the post season and could also help with seeding in the NCAA Tournament.
