The Wildcats will have to fend off an upset-minded Greensboro squad

Drew Brown - Sea of Blue

The Kentucky Wildcats will have their hands full today as the UNC Greensboro Spartans come into Rupp Arena for a game this afternoon.

The Spartans come in at 7-1 with their only loss being a 6-point loss on the road at LSU in which they connected on 19-33 three pointers.

That’s not the ideal matchup for a Kentucky team that has struggled guarding on the perimeter this season.

The Wildcats will have to come up big against guard Francis Alonso, UNC-Greensboro’s all-time leader in made three-pointers who is shooting at a 46.2 percent clip on the season, as well as forward Kyrin Galloway, who is hovering around the 46 percent mark from the perimeter this season and scored 32 points (8-10 on threes) against LSU.

Kentucky’s defense looked noticeably better against Monmouth, but Monmouth is a team that struggles to shoot from the outside anyway, so today will be a good test to see how far the Wildcats have come.
