ESPN 680 Postgame Podcast: Kentucky whips South Carolina Edition

The Cats completely dominated the Gamecocks.

NCAA Basketball: South Carolina at Kentucky Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

Well that was fun. The Kentucky Wildcats pounded the visiting South Carolina Gamecocks and were able to beat them at their own game: toughness, defense, and rebounding.

The Cats outrebounded the Gamecocks 51-29 and completely smothered them on defense. The bench had a great night as EJ Montgomery, Jemarl Baker, and Immanuel Quickley all played big minutes and contributed in major ways.

Here is what I discussed:

  • The rebounding clinic the Cats put on was a sight to behold
  • This team is locked in on defense
  • Reid Travis held Chris Silva to just four points and four rebounds
  • PJ Washington continues to dominate and has turned the corner
  • EJ Montgomery looked comfortable for the first time all season
  • Has this team peaked?
  • What did John Calipari have to say during his press conference?
  • The Cats have some big games ahead of them
  • Player sound from Baker, Montgomery, and Washington
  • Your calls and more!

I’ll be back with you on Saturday after the Cats take on the Mississippi State Bulldogs in Starkville.
