Monday Quickies: On to Kansas Edition

The Cats have a day to prepare for a matchup with the Jayhawks

NCAA Basketball: Bluegrass Showcase-Richmond at Kentucky Jordan Prather-USA TODAY Sports

Coming off of a loss yesterday, the Kentucky Wildcats have a short amount of time to figure things out and prepare for a marquee matchup Tuesday night against the Kansas Jayhawks in the Champions Classic.

Kentucky showed some holes in its matchup against Richmond Sunday, and those deficiencies will likely be magnified when the Wildcats take the floor against Kansas Tuesday night, who hold a 1-1 record with a loss to Gonzaga and a win over St. Joe’s.

However, the Jayhawks showed flashes of a potent offense in that loss to Gonzaga, scoring 90 points in a loss while shooting 53 percent from the field and 44.4 percent from the perimeter.

Defeating Kansas would be an excellent way to bounce back from Sunday’s loss and add a significant resume-building win for the postseason, but Kentucky will need to find some offense in order to keep up with the Jayhawks.
