The Cats will aim to extend their solid play from the second half of Friday night’s win against Mount St. Mary’s. The last 20 minutes of basketball that UK played was some of their best of the season, and it provided the spark they needed after some bad performances vs. Evansville and Utah Valley.
The starters for the game were Ashton Hagans, Nick Richards, Tyrese Maxey, Nate Sestina, and Keion Brooks Jr. UK was listed as a 25-point favorite but have yet to cover a spread since the Eastern Kentucky game. But for the first time in a long time, the Cats should be completely healthy with EJ Montgomery and Immanuel Quickley both at full strength.
Lamar, like Kentucky, is 4-1 on the season. We will see what they will do under the bright lights inside Rupp Arena.
