Wildcat Quickies: Back to Hoops Edition

New, 20 comments

The Cats get back to a hectic schedule, Kentucky football falls to Tennessee and more.

NCAA Basketball: Stephen F. Austin at Kentucky Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

The Kentucky Wildcats have a relatively quick turnaround to start the season off, as they face off against Canisius tonight in their second game of the season. Following an impressive 87-64 win against Stephen F. Austin, the Cats will look to tune up against Canisius and prepare for their Tuesday matchup against Michigan State. MSU should be one of the toughest tests of the season for Kentucky, so they could use the tune up in order to prepare.

Perhaps the best catch of the day yesterday, and one of a couple nice catches by Blake Bone.
