Kentucky has played a true road game just one time this season. And it did not turn out well. The Cats struggled offensively, hitting just two of 19 (10.5 percent) from behind the arc, in a 66-62 loss at Notre Dame on Dec. 11.
UK, ranked 16th in this week’s Associated Press poll, will face another true road game on Tuesday night, as the Cats visit the Pete Maravich Assembly Center in Baton Rouge to face No. 21 LSU. Kentucky is hoping to learn from its first experience playing in front of a hostile crowd this season.
“That was our first true road game with a new team who had never been in that situation before,” said assistant coach Chin Coleman. “Now, we have that experience and experience is the best teacher. From now on, we know that our job is to go on the road with a different mentality and to play with a swagger.”
“Just to know how it feels, especially with a crowd,” Mintz said. “Going in, obviously the other team is super excited. They’re really looking forward to having us there. They’re doing something special just because we’re there. It’s an attraction when we play in the arena.”
Game time: 6 p.m. CT/7 p.m. ET on Tuesday, Jan. 4
