The Kentucky Wildcats are back on the basketball court tonight as they take on the North Dakota Fighting Hawks, who sit at 2-0 on the season.
The Fighting Hawks, of the Summit Conference, are coming off a 63-60 win at Milwaukee, but enter tonight’s matchup as a 26-point underdog against Kentucky.
For Kentucky, it will be interesting to look for any changes from the season’s first two games. John Calipari has been talking about getting back to old-school basketball and fundamentals in practice. Will it show results tonight?
One thing I will be keeping an eye on is turnovers. Kentucky has turned the ball over frequently during the first two games (34 total turnovers), which led to easy baskets for the opponents.
North Dakota is also a team that shoots well from the perimeter, so it will be a test for Kentucky’s perimeter defenders to be in position to alter shots and not give the North Dakota shooters a clean look at the basket.
Tonight is a late tip, set for 9 p.m. on the SEC Network.
