Kentucky came out and easily took care of business last night against North Dakota, winning by a final score of 96-58.
While North Dakota isn’t exactly considered a good opponent, the Wildcats easily dispatched of them in a game that many in the fanbase needed to see. Fans wanted to see Kentucky easily take care of business against a lesser team and they got it last night.
The Wildcats took a 21-point lead into halftime and expanded it even further in the second half, and received strong performances from sophomore PJ Washington and freshman Tyler Herro in the process, two players who have struggled early on this season.
Overall, this game should serve as a good confidence builder moving forward in the season and hopefully guys like Washington and Herro can build off of their solid performances.

I’ve been covering UK daily since 1999. I’ve never seen Rupp Arena like this at tip-off for a regular season game. Weather is awful tonight, tip-off is at 9 ET and opponent is North Dakota, but it still takes you aback... pic.twitter.com/vgrTy6v3r4— Jeff Drummond (@JDrumUK) November 15, 2018
