How is Kentucky basketball playing heading into the postseason?
Kentucky has climbed back up to No. 4 in the nation, according to the latest Associated Press Top 25 poll released Monday and back into the conversation of who will earn a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.
The Cats climbed two spots after losses ahead them in last week’s poll by both Tennessee, now No. 8, and Duke, now, No. 5.
ESPN’s Joe Lunardi recently moved Kentucky back to his No. 1 line as the top seed in the South Regional in his Bracketology forecast, the same position CBSSports.com’s Jerry Palm has them. Kentucky likely will need to perform well at this week’s Southeastern Conference Tournament to maintain those expectations.
Gonzaga, Virginia and North Carolina remained 1-2-3 atop an otherwise reshuffled top 10.
