Nearly pulling off the program’s second all-time triple-double, Cauley-Stein posted 15 points, a career-high nine blocks and eight rebounds Sunday night in Kentucky’s 79-65 victory over Providence at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
The wall-sits and having them put their hands behind their backs isn’t about going back to fundamentals, Calipari says. The idea is to get the players to push through their comfort levels.
After yet another sluggish first half – Kentucky led just 35-32 at halftime – Cauley-Stein busted the Cats out of their reoccurring slow starts with an active second half.
Aaron Harrison, Julius Randle and Willie Cauley-Stein discuss the Wildcats’ 81-63 victory over Eastern Michigan, their fourth straight win.
Another one of Cailpari’s prophecies that might be coming true: that preseason prediction that seven or eight players on this team are capable of scoring 25 or more points in a game this year. Young is the third player to do it in just five games for the 4-1 Wildcats.
James Young, Willie Cauley-Stein and Andrew Harrison discuss the Wildcats’ 105-76 win over Texas Arlington in UK’s second game of the Keightley Classic.
Aaron Harrison took advantage of some open looks from the outside to score a career-high 28 points, and the top-ranked Wildcats (3-1) limited Robert Morris to 23.2 percent shooting in a bounce-back victory.
Harrison notched 22 points and a career-high seven rebounds in the win over Eastern Michigan and a career-high four assists Sunday night at the Barclays Center against Providence.
