South Carolina coach Darrin Horn has been impressed by Kentucky's freshmen players for more than just their talent.

"I think the freshmen have been terrific," said Horn during the Southeastern Conference coaches teleconference Monday.

Not just winning plays on talent, but winning basketball plays. Smart play down the stretch or the right play down the stretch. It has been impressive."
