What I hope to see tonight
Continued defensive improvement. Sunday night was better, now let's see if we can top that.
Efficient offense versus the zone. I don't care how we do it, but Kentucky is going to see a lot of zone this season.
Another player besides Julius Randle have a big game.
Continued good foul shooting. It was good Sunday, it needs to stay good tonight.
More and better fast breaks. We haven't run that many, and not all of them have been any good.
The return of Alex Poythress to form. We need him to play better than he did Sunday.
This should be a game that Kentucky wins easily, but this UT-Arlington team has some players that are pretty good, just not that many. The zone may provide us with lots of enlightenment tonight.
