NCAA Basketball: Arkansas at Florida Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

This afternoon’s SEC on CBS matchup will feature a battle of the second and third place teams in the conference as the No. 6 Kentucky Wildcats head to Fayetteville, AR, to meet the No. 18 Arkansas Razorbacks.

Kentucky (23-5, 12-3 SEC) is coming off a nice 71-66 home victory over LSU on Wednesday. The Wildcats trailed by eight at halftime but completely flipped the game at the outset of the second half, outscoring the Tigers 24-9 in the first 10 minutes of the period. Oscar Tshiebwe led with 17 points and 16 rebounds in the win.

Arkansas (22-6, 11-4 SEC) is also rolling late and downed Florida on the road 82-74 on Tuesday. This was a back-and-forth affair deep into the contest until the Razorbacks grabbed control within the last 10 minutes to pull away. JD Notae led with 22 points and six rebound in the win while Davonte Davis came off the bench to put up 19 points and six rebounds.
