Thursday Quickies: San Lorenzo Gameday Edition

Kentucky gets set for game No. 2.

Quade Green Sea of Blue

Kentucky has started the Bahamas trip 1-0 and is on to game two.

The Wildcats will take on San Lorenzo De Almagro, a basketball club team in Argentina.

Game one was sloppy, but wound up being a blowout in which Kentucky won with ease. We’re likely to see a different starting lineup and different rotation as John Calipari looks to figure out what exactly works best. He certainly doesn’t have an answer for that yet, and he won’t have his answer by the end of this Bahamas trip either.

The Wildcats tip off at 7 p.m. on the SEC Network again this evening.
