Kentucky Basketball highlights from fun win over Clarion

New, 1 comment

UK looked mighty impressive for what was the first real college game for many of these Cats.

Fun continues to be the theme of this Kentucky team.

It’s just fun to watch these Cats play. They do everything so effortless, unselfishly, and with the kind of enthusiasm that makes it clear they love playing with and for each other.

All of that was on display in their first exhibition game of the 2016-17 college basketball season. It came against John Calipari’s alma mater of Clarion, and the Golden Eagles were no match for these Cats.

As a team, UK shot 61 percent and was led in scoring by freshman guard Malik Monk with 15. UK had 51 rebounds, 29 assists and forced 26 turnovers.

Oh, and Brad Calipari scored, and everyone went nuts.

UK dominated from start to finish and cruised to a 108-51 win. Re-live the win thanks to the latest work from Kentucky Wildcats TV:
