Sporting a new look Tuesday night, Willie Cauley-Stein continued to terrorize opponents on the defensive end with his shot-blocking ability.
The No. 10/11 Cats (8-2) responded with arguably its best win of the season Tuesday night, a 70-55 victory over the previously undefeated Broncos (8-1).
How do the Cats get back on the winning side of the scoreboard? We take a look at the keys to victory in Tuesday night’s Kentucky-Boise State matchup.
Ranked the No.1 team in the country to start the season and talked about as a team that could go 40-0, the Kiddie Cats find themselves handicapped by youth and two losses in nine games, the latest of which happened Friday night against Baylor.
After watching his team get outrebounded, “outhustled” and “outworked” in the second half of doubleheader nightcap, a hot and irritated John Calipari said this letdown loss simply came down to toughness. One team (Baylor) had it. The other (Kentucky) didn’t.
If Kentucky is going to win Friday night, limiting Baylor’s 3-point shooting and Julius Randle’s decision making against Baylor’s swarming zone could go a long way.
AT&T Stadium, the Dallas Cowboys’ home, will play host to both Friday night’s doubleheader between the Kentucky and Baylor men’s and women’s teams as well this year’s Final Four and national championship. Quite frankly, there is nothing like it in all of sports.
