It will be interesting to see if Kentucky lets down its guard against the vastly inferior EMU Eagles. If they don't, this should be a relatively easy game for this improving Kentucky squad. If they do, we will hear a lot of John Calipari yelling and stamping, because the Rupp Arena crowd will be silent as a tomb if the Eagles stay anywhere near Kentucky after the first 15 minutes or so.

What I hope to see:

  • A better Alex Poythress. He doesn't have to lead the team in scoring, just be a factor, and play defense.
  • More 3-point shots. EMU is a zone team, so we should see lots of them;
  • Better transition offense and defense;
  • Continued rebounding improvement;
  • Continued communication improvement.

This is the last really easy game (at least it should be) before conference play begins. I'd much rather go into conference playing well than struggling against a team 260 spots worse than Kentucky. Let's hope the 'Cats give us something to cheer about so we can move on from that last loss.

Go, 'Cats!
