“The last game Marquis Teague started so good that our team started good,” Kentucky coach John Calipari said. “In this game, he was trying to make hero's plays so he could get oohs and aahs from the crowd so he turned it over twice in four minutes.” Kentucky defeated Marist 108-58 to officially open the season Friday night at Rupp Arena. In the first half, Teague had two turnovers with one assist in 13 minutes. In two previous exhibition games, Teague had four turnovers vs. 16 assists in 38 total minutes.
