What better way to end a Monday than a few hours of Kentucky basketball? Coming over a significant win over a quality Ohio team on Friday, the Wildcats return to Rupp Arena Monday night for a matchup with the Albany Great Danes. Since dropping a close loss to Duke in their season opener, Kentucky has put together three straight wins with their latest coming in an effort that consisted of this season’s top-two scorers laying a goose egg in the box score.
Of course both Kellan Grady and Oscar Tshiebwe would like to get back to putting points on the board, but it has to be an excellent sign that Kentucky can beat a quality team like Ohio by going to other players in the lineup. While you wouldn’t want to see a performance like that a couple of months into the season, it’s good that Kentucky has opportunities early in the year to adjust/make up for losing that offensive production.
Once again Kentucky will have a significant rebounding edge, posting a difference of 15 rebounds per game in comparison to Albany. The Wildcats also average double the assists, block nearly twice as many shots and shoot/score at a much more efficient rate. Albany is winless on the season, dropping four straight games to begin the 2021-2022 season. ESPN’s Football Power Index gives Kentucky a 96.8% chance of victory. Watch the game on SEC Network+ or ESPN+. Tip-off is set for 7 PM in Lexington.

Who else had their day made Sunday morning?
The Wildcats will miss this veteran next season.
Is there a better “win” this season than what we saw OSU do this weekend?
Over bettors had a sour afternoon watching this one.
Imagine trying to defend this play.
What a day for the young star.
Arguably the best “watch” of the day.
