Kentucky owns an all-time record of 1-0 against Cleveland State having met the Vikings in the Cancun Challenge on Nov. 24, 2009 in John Calipari's first season as coach of the Cats.
Freshman John Wall scored a team-high 15 points, including 11 after halftime, as he zipped in and out of the Cleveland State defense.
The game was played in unconventional surroundings, with the resort's main ballroom being converted into a makeshift gymnasium. Chandeliers hung from the low ceiling, two electronic scoreboards were connected to the ceiling by wire cables, and a food buffet sat just a few feet off the end of one baseline. Sections of the hardwood floor had gaps several inches wide and the baseline was a jagged line where the floor did not match up.
