The Kentucky Wildcats are now 4-0 after a dominant win over Duquesne on Sunday night, 93-59.
A couple of Cats got off to their best starts in a UK uniform. Mychal Mulder matched his career high of eight points with five in the first half, including catching a lob and throwing it down from an Isaiah Briscoe assist, and then nailing a three later in the first.
Bam Adebayo also was off to his best start after the first half, scoring eight points and grabbing four rebounds to go with a block and two steals, and most importantly, only one foul. He stayed out of foul trouble but played smart and make his presence felt on defense while letting very few rebounds get away.
Isaiah Briscoe was on triple double alert early scoring nine points with five assists and four steals in the first half. However, Coach Cal gave him some deserving rest in the second half, and he finished with 13 points total.
Freshman point guard De’Aaron Fox pretty much scored at will. The Dukes were not stopping Fox when he got the ball in his hands. The freshman point guard could penetrate all over the Duquesne defense, drawing several fouls and putting in 16 points to go with six dimes.
Kentucky has won each of their first 4 games of a season by at least 21 points for the first time since 1948-1949— Corey Price (@coreyp08) November 21, 2016
