SEC Predictions For January 26-28: Can South Carolina Upset Top Ranked Kentucky?

The SEC has the number one ranked team in the nation, but they may not have too much time to celebrate with a road trip to Columbia on Tuesday night on ESPN.

A couple of teams,Georgia and Alabama, try to follow up upset wins and Tennessee tries to bounce back from their debacle this weekend. Lets get to the predictions for the week.

Kentucky at South Carolina Tuesday
The Colonial Life Arena will be rocking when number on Kentucky comes to town Tuesday night. The Gamecocks have suffered three straight losses, including a heart breaker in Gainesville this past weekend. Kentucky may have played their best game of the season this past Saturday.

It seems like when two team are going divergent directions, the parity of college basketball brings them back. Party in Five Points!
Pick: South Carolina in a major upset!

Georgia at Florida Wednesday
The Bulldogs finally broke through this weekend with their first win over a top 10 team since Jim Harrick roamed the sidelines. Now lets see how they handle the success. Most young teams don't handle it well, especially on the road.
Pick: Florida

Vanderbilt at Tennessee Wednesday
Did the lack of depth finally catch up with the Vols on Saturday? It sure looked like they were playing in a different speed than Georgia. Bruce Pearl will have his team ready to bounce back at home.
Pick: Tennessee

LSU at Alabama Wednesday
The home win over Miss State gave this Alabama team just what they needed, some confidence. LSU looks like they are the worst team in the conference. Just like football chants ring out from the Crimson Tide fans.
Pick: Alabama

Miss State at Arkansas Thursday
This is a game Arkansas has to have to keep up with any kind of postseason bid. This is the kind of game Miss State needs to steal on the road to win the West. Bud Walton isn't the same home court advantage it used to be.
Pick: Miss State

Ole Miss at Auburn Thursday
Searching for an angle here. Don't really have one.
Pick: Auburn
