Wednesday Headlines: Kentucky Dominates No. 8 Miami

Good morning, BBN!

It was a big night for the Kentucky Wildcats as they took down the No. 8 Miami Hurricanes in dominating fashion in the second half.

Reed Sheppard was the star. After DJ Wagner went out for the rest of the game due to an ankle injury, Reed took control and shined in all facets of the game.

Tre Mitchell and Antonio Reeves continued to show off their consistency and importance as they made plays all night long, and overall, the team was firing on all cylinders as they dropped 95 points against a very talented Miami team.

You’re seeing headlines all across college basketball this morning about the Cats and their championship potential, and it’s well-deserved, but we haven’t seen them close to full strength yet.

Aaron Bradshaw should be back next week, and Big Z and Ugo won’t be too far behind.

You can feel it in the fan base. BBN can’t contain their excitement.
