Here’s what’s on tap tonight!

SOUTH CAROLINA vs. KENTUCKY

7 p.m. ET | SEC Network | WatchESPN

The white-hot Kentucky Wildcats get back in action at Rupp Arena on Tuesday night. The Wildcats will host the previously red-hot South Carolina Gamecocks. Prior to falling at the hands of Tennessee, SC was off to a rabid start in SEC play. But the Vols knocked them on their heels, and now they’ll have the unenviable task of facing off with John Calipari’s Cats. Keep your eye on PJ Washington in this one, as the sophomore big man has been dominant in the last couple contests.

VANDERBILT vs. ARKANSAS
9 p.m. ET | SEC Network | WatchESPN

The Vanderbilt Commodores’ quest for their first SEC victory will continue on Tuesday night. The Commodores will take on the Arkansas Razorbacks in Fayetteville, as they look to erase their nine-game losing streak and 0-8 start in SEC play. On the flipside, the Hogs are looking to keep the good vibes going. They’ve won three of their last four and defeated the LSU Tigers over the weekend, which ended LSU’s lengthy win streak. Daniel Gafford will look to build off of his 23-point, 8-rebound performance against the Fighting Tigers over the weekend.

MIZZOU vs. TENNESSEE
9 p.m. ET | ESPN2 | WatchESPN

The top-ranked Tennessee Volunteers will play host to the Missouri Tigers on Tuesday. The Vols will aim to keep their status as the top team in the land and extend their win streak up to a gaudy 17 games in a row. Grant Williams and Admiral Schofield have unsurprisingly been the ones who’ve taken the Vols to this level of prominence and the spotlight will be on them once more here. Mizzou, meanwhile, will be aiming for the upset as they seek their second win in a row, having defeated Vandy over the weekend.

FLORIDA vs. AUBURN
9 p.m. ET | ESPNU | WatchESPN

Lastly, the Auburn Tigers and Florida Gators will get together to face off on Tuesday night. The Tigers have bounced back from their three-game losing streak and 2-4 start to get back up to .500 with their recent wins over Mizzou and the Alabama Crimson Tide. Bryce Brown and Jared Harper have been playing their tails off and did so against ‘Bama, combining for 42 points. The Gators are seeking a bounce back themselves, having gotten throttled by Kentucky on Saturday. As always, keep your eye on KeVaughn Allen and Noah Locke here.
