the other night, and I will say this:
If an SEC team did not beat Kentucky last year, they may have missed their best opportunity.
Jodie Meeks and Patrick Patterson are healthy again, and they looked great on the floor. Meeks hit seven 3-pointers, and finished with 27 points. Patterson scored 24.
I was very impressed with the other players that Gillespie has brought in. Josh Harrelson went 9 for 14, and ended the game with 21 points and 12 rebounds. The new guards look very capable.
Tennessee is the class of the SEC. They are better and deeper than anyone else-- as it stands now.
However, Kentucky might give UT all they can handle by the time the new year rolls around and the SEC conference schedule begins.
For that matter, Florida and Vanderbilt will be much more athletic. Yes, and even Georgia is building its roster. Should be a fantastic year for the SEC East. Not sure about the West, but the East will offer great basketball watching this year.
