The Cats kicked off their 2015-16 season in style with a 117-58 win over Ottawa in the first of two exhibition games. After being ranked No. 2 in the NCAA pre-season poll, the Cats put on a show to make their case for the No. 1 spot.
The game seemed to be over before it began as the Cats scored 13 points before Ottawa was able to put one in the net.
“Unless an NBA team calls us to schedule us that’s the best team we are ever going to play,” Ottawa head coach Aaron Siebenthall said. “Right now I feel like I’m back in college and I just took a really hard test, and I didn’t do very well on it, but it’s over with.”
The effort was lead by UK’s three starting guards in Tyler Ulis, Jamal Murray and Isaiah Briscoe, who combined for 50 of the teams 117 points.
