Wednesday Quickies: Kentucky vs Monmouth Edition

The Wildcats take on a winless Monmouth team at home tonight

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

The Kentucky Wildcats take the floor against a winless Monmouth Hawks team tonight in a game that, on paper, should fare well for the Wildcats.

The Hawks have struggled out of the gates mightily, losing their first seven games, six of them by double digits. They don’t shoot the ball exceptionally well from the perimeter as a team, which has been a Kentucky weakness, so that also bodes well for Kentucky.

If Kentucky plays to their potential, this should be a game in which the Wildcats hold a commanding lead throughout the game and never give Monmouth a chance to be in the game. This has the potential to be the type of game fans have wanted to see from this Kentucky team in which they just go out and dominate an opponent.

However, it will come down to how Kentucky shows up to play tonight. Game tips off at 8:30 p.m. ET on the SEC Network.
