Friday Headlines: Robert Morris Gameday Edition

New, 53 comments
NCAA Basketball: Kentucky at Duke Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

Here you have it Big Blue Nation — the Kentucky Wildcats are one game into their 2021 season and are already playing a “revenge” game at Rupp Arena. This Friday the Wildcats will host the Robert Morris Colonials in their second matchup since 2013 when the latter upset the former in the NIT Tournament that postseason. ‘Twas a season to forget and after evening the score during the 2013-2014 pre-season, Kentucky will have a strong chance of taking the series lead.

Despite dropping Tuesday night’s season opener against Duke, Kentucky appeared to play hard for all 40 minutes of action and should enjoy a successful season this year. Oscar Tshiebwe is an absolute beast in the painted area while it’s clear that Sahvir Wheeler’s veteran experience will help jumpstart the John Calipari offense.

While it may take a few games for Kentucky to get going, Friday night will be an opportunity for the Wildcats to relax by playing back home in their own arena. Kentucky is currently a 23.5-point favorite and the over/under is 144 points. Tip-off is set for 7 PM.
