Kentucky will have yet another shot at finally blowing out a lesser opponent on Friday night.

Kentucky’s sloppy play on the hardwood looks to be rather consistent, which is quite shocking considering their significant defeat of former No. 1 Michigan State. On Friday, Kentucky will take Rupp Arena’s court less than two weeks after being upset by Evansville, a game of which they were simply out-hustled at both ends of the court. With their anticipated matchup with Utah less than a month away, and the Wildcats’ annual game against Louisville right after, Kentucky could certainly benefit from finding their groove as soon as possible. As they hose Mount Saint Mary’s tonight, look for head coach John Calipari’s Wildcats to play harder than they have since their marquee win over Michigan State. And while there’s certainly emphasis to play with energy, Kentucky also has had an abundance of injuries. So the team’s health will be worth monitoring before, during and after Friday’s game.
