Teams that have great versatility tend to fare very well in college basketball. Teams that can play in any kind of conditions, at home, on the road, against fast teams and slow teams, tend to be the ones that have the most success.
It took a little while, but this year’s Kentucky team is finding out that it has quite a bit of versatility. The Cats have shown that in the last two weeks.
UK went on the road and beat a top-five Tennessee game in a slower-paced, physical game. The following Tuesday, the Cats played a faster, more high-scoring game in beating Georgia. Then on Saturday, it was back to a physical game, and another win, this time against Texas A&M.
Kentucky has won three in a row and the Cats will take the winning streak into one of college basketball’s most unique environments, Vanderbilt’s Memorial Gymnasium, on Tuesday night (9 p.m. ET, SEC Network).
