No. 6 Kentucky ready for another road game at South Carolina

Jan. 23—No. 6 Kentucky has another road trip to South Carolina in front of it for Tuesday. Tipoff is at 6 p.m. CT. Kentucky assistant coach Chin Coleman met with the media in Lexington on Monday.

All the camera and note pad crew wanted to talk about early in the session was Zvonimir Ivisic, the 7-foot-2 freshman from Croatia, who had one of the most impressive debuts last Saturday for Kentucky basketball since John Calipari has been head coach.
