It was a game, as John Calipari described, players could have tried to “get their own.”
Bigger, faster, stronger, Kentucky had a decided physical advantage over Sunday’s NAIA competition.
Rather than relax, however, the Wildcats had a plan to run and get to the basket. With an up-tempo focus, UK shot a ridiculous 81.8 percent from the floor in the first half and scored 1.450 points per possession for the game.
Kentucky got a ton — 41 of them, to be exact — of good looks at the rim on Sunday. (photo by Chris Reynolds)
Just in case you’re not what Coach Cal calls a “Basketball Benny,” that’s really, really good.
