Tonight, it's the Cleveland St. Vikings versus the Kentucky Wildcats in Rupp Arena, yet another game in the exempt Keightley Classic event.

What I'm hoping to see tonight:

  • Better communication;
  • More Julius Randle;
  • A continued commitment to making open shots;'
  • More time spent in a defensive stance rather than straight up;
  • More effort.

All these things are on John Calipari's checklist, and you can bet he will demand every bit of this and more. Tonight, I will be hunting for this game down at the sports book in Bally's, and I have no idea whether or not I'll get to see it. No matter what, Ken Howlett (remember him?) will have your postmortem after the game.

This is a game Kentucky should win easily, although Cleveland St. is not as bad a team as some might think. They have talent, but they are young for a small school team and that will work against them tonight. Of course, it will work against Kentucky as well, but they have more talent to begin with.

Go, 'Cats!
