Kentucky Basketball Headlines: Beat Yale and other News

The Cats are set to take on Yale from the Ivy League and there’s football news aplenty.

NCAA Basketball: Kentucky at Michigan Peter van den Berg-USA TODAY Sports

The Kentucky Wildcats notched their first win against a Power Five team when they beat the Michigan Wolverines in London, England on Sunday. Oscar Tshiebwe was his normal double-double self. The story of the game was the clutch play by sensational freshman Cason Wallace. He had 14 points and 8 rebounds along with a dagger three with about a minute and a half left that all be clinched the game for the Cats.

While Yale isn’t Michigan, they’ll play similar to the Bellarmine Knights, which was a team that Kentucky struggled with for about 75% of the game. Kentucky will have to execute in the half court and rely on their guards to initiate offense and make plays.

This game may be a slog but it would be nice to see the Cats keep this team at arm’s length for 40 minutes. They have had plenty of time to practice and won’t play again until next Saturday against UCLA in the CBS Sports Classic.

This is the time of the season to get it worked out before getting into SEC play. Go undefeated for the rest of the month and the Cats are cookin’.
