The top team in the SEC faces the conference's worst as Wall leads fourth-ranked Kentucky against the Tigers on Saturday. The Wildcats (21-1, 6-1) opened the season 19-0 before being upset 68-62 at South Carolina on Jan. 26 – a loss that knocked them out of the No. 1 spot in the AP poll. They responded four days later with an 85-72 victory over then-No. 21 Vanderbilt. Wall, though, turned in a season-worst 4-of-12 shooting performance and tied a season high with seven turnovers. In the aftermath, he said he “wasn't having any fun” and that he was “frustrated” while also claiming he tries to ignore criticism from coach John Calipari.
