Big Blue Nation is going to love this edition of Kentucky basketball.
The Wildcats are deep, quick, can score in transition, defend well and will get better and better. John Calipari lost so much talent from last season: Tyler Ulis, Jamal Murray, Skal Labissiere, Alex Poythress. Calipari is a recruiting machine and he has reloaded.
You couldn’t tell how his team would respond to playing in Madison Square Garden against a ranked team Tuesday night. Kentucky passed its test against Michigan State, 69-48.
Remember, this squad has been together for about a month. It is young, but oh so talented. They play well as a team and Michigan State’s size advantage was a small factor.
