Rosters: Kentucky | Centre

The Kentucky Wildcats will play their third and final exhibition game Friday night at Rupp Arena. Winning their first two by an average of 33.5 points, Kentucky will look to put on another strong showing in front of Big Blue Nation before their season officially tips off next week.

Wildcat Forward Kevin Knox, who is averaging 21.5 points through the first two exhibition games, has far and away been Kentucky's best player. The effortless pace and substantial mismatch he forces on both ends of the court allow head coach John Calipari to play multiple "position-less" lineups.

Speaking of position-less lineups, don't be surprised if Calipari goes with the trio of Quade Green, Hamidou Diallo and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, along with Knox & PJ Washington, at times. The 3-guard lineup allows Kentucky to exercise their dribble-drive offense with Knox & Washington simply overpowering people inside.

That won't be the only lineup we likely see a lot, though, as Kentucky is one of the taller teams in the country. Their athleticism, even at power forward & center, could allow even a lineup of Gilgeous-Alexander, Diallo, Knox, Washington & Gabriel or Richards to excel in the fast break but also dominate in the half-court.

Friday night look for Calipari to exercise both, as it's Kentucky's last chance to do so vs. an opponent in a game that technically doesn't count towards their regular season win-loss total.
