Key Injuries: Kentucky - (F) Jarred Vanderbilt is downgraded to doubtful Thursday vs Davidson ( Ankle ). Davidson - No key injuries for this game.

Our Prediction: Davidson had to make a surprise run through the A-10 Tournament to punch its ticket to today’s game, but I think they are running into the wrong team today. Kentucky looked as good as it has all season last week in the SEC Tournament. The Wildcats have won and covered in seven of their last eight games and seem to be playing to their potential after a rocky regular season. I think Kentucky continues its hot streak and rolls past Davidson today.
