Kentucky head coach John Calipari has never been afraid to take his team on the road. But even Coach Cal may have outdone himself this week.
Calipari and his Cats are in London (England, not Kentucky), where UK will face Michigan at O2 Arena in the Basketball Hall of Fame London Showcase on Sunday. It will be the first official game that Kentucky has ever played outside of North America.
The 19th-ranked Cats are coming off a 60-41 win over Bellarmine on Tuesday night at Rupp Arena. After being tied 21-21 at the half, UK was able to use its size advantage to open up the lead in the second half to win for the fifth time in seven starts.
Antonio Reeves leads Kentucky in scoring, averaging 14.9 points per game. Defending National Player of the Year Oscar Tshiebwe, who missed the first two games of the season due to injury, is averaging 14.4 points and 13.4 rebounds per game. Jacob Toppin averages 12.7 points per game, while Cason Wallace (10.6 ppg) and CJ Fredrick (10.3) are also averaging double figures in scoring.
