It took a little more work than expected, but Kentucky still cruised to a win over Arkansas to cap off a great Saturday.
Freshman point guard De’Aaron Fox was the star of the night as he burned the Hos for a career-high
Senior forward Derek Willis chipped in a big 15 points on 6-of-8 shooting (3-of-5 three-point shooting) off the bench. That helped account for freshmen Malik Monk and Bam Adebayo having quiet nights.
Sophomore guard Isaiah Briscoe added 15 points and eight rebounds. UK’s defense was on point much of the night, holding Arkansas to just 25-of-63 shooting (39.7%). It was a solid win that was highlighted by continued improvement on defense and Fox becoming a superstar.
