NCAA Basketball: East Tennessee State at Kentucky Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

The Kentucky Wildcats beat the ETSU Buccaneers last Friday night 78-61 behind the offensive explosion and sharpshooting of Quade Green. John Calipari has been looking for someone to be consistent along with scoring leader Kevin Knox.

One game it’s PJ Washington, then it’s Hamidou Diallo, then Quade Green. It would be great if another Wildcat could get on track offensively and stay there.

The Troy Trojans hail from the Sun Belt conference and they are 2-2 on the season. They have a few players that are 6’8 but no one bigger than that, so Kentucky should have a major advantage on the boards. The rebounding has been a weak point and for this team to get where they want to go, they need to fix those issues ASAP.

Kentucky is six games away from UCLA and Louisville. They really need to focus on some of the basics before they play those two teams. Expect the Cats to come out aggressive on offense, getting the early lead and then building off of that for the rest of the game.
