Dominique Hawkins made his first start for UK in Friday’s game against Boston and didn't waste any time making an impact.
Booker was the second-half star as UK (4-0) overcame a sluggish first half that saw the Cats manage just a five-point lead. He scored 12 of his 15 points after the break and UK outscored the Terriers 49-30 to register an 89-65 win in front of 22,485 fans at Rupp Arena.
“I finally got to see a shot go in,” Booker said. “That’s good to see, and most of all I wanted to get other people involved and I feel like we did that. We had a slow start, but in the second half we pulled it together.”
