Kentucky coach John Calipari is looking for the Wildcats to build off their convincing season-opening win over Morehead State when they host Richmond Sunday in the Bluegrass Showcase at Lexington, Ky.
The 10th-ranked Wildcats (1-0) are coming off an 81-45 win over Morehead State with 10 newcomers meshing together, but Calipari wants his team to improve its interior passing, rebounding and perimeter defense.
“We’re going to have to figure out, what if they have a really fast and quick point guard? Who is guarding that guy?” Calipari asked.
Richmond point guard Jacob Gilyard, who has 1,276 career points, will make Kentucky figure that out right away. He ranked 10th nationally in assist-to-turnover ratio last season and topped the nation with 3.19 steals per game.
