Perhaps the most pleasant surprise of Kentucky's first exhibition game, a 56-38 win over Missouri Western State, was freshman Ugonna Onyenso, who made an immediate splash for the Cats.

Onyenso, who reclassified to be eligible to play collegiately this season, entered the game mid-way through the first half. By the time the half ended, he had managed to block five shots over a four-minute span, giving a lift to his team and getting the  crowd excited about what they were seeing.

For Onyenso, it wasn't anything out of the norm.

“This is what I do,” Onyenso said. “This is how I play.”

Admittedly, he was a little bit surprised how well things went in his first game at Rupp Arena.

“I wasn't expecting to play that well,” Onyenso said. “But I told myself to do what you do best.”

The Cats get another chance to play in front of the  crowd on Thursday, hosting  in the final exhibition game of the 2022-23 slate.
