UK Wildcats Basketball: ESPN 680 Victory over Utah Valley Podcast

Lachlan McLean and James Streble talk about UK’s win over the Wolverines.

NCAA Basketball: Utah Valley at Kentucky Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

The Kentucky Wildcats came out winners last night 73-63 over the Utah Valley Wolverines.

While it was nip and tuck through most of the game, the young Cats were able to overcome a 12 point deficit to win their debut game against Kentucky great Mark Pope’s Utah Valley Wolverines.

Here is what we discussed:

  • Cal’s decision to start Shai Gilgeous-Alexander over Quade Green turned out to be the right one.
  • Hamidou Diallo and Kevin Knox need to be the go to guys when the Cats need a bucket.
  • Wenyen Gabriel struggled to score but his 13 boards and energy gave the Cats the boost they needed.
  • How about that zone?
  • John Calipari’s entire postgame press conference along with our comments.
  • Previewing Vermont.
  • Nick Richards has a high ceiling.
  • The Cats could have folded but battled through the score, their youth and inexperience to win. Which is a great sign.
  • The SEC is no joke this season.

I’ll be back on the radio immediately following the football game against Vanderbilt today. Here is how you can listen:
