Kentucky beats Michigan in London: 4 things to know and postgame cheers

Photo by Andy Lyons/ Kentucky finally gets a quality win. The Kentucky Wildcats traveled to London, England to take on the Michigan Wolverines on Sunday afternoon, where they were able to pick up a big 73-69 win. The Cats got off to a quick, but shaky defense led to a back and forth battle in the first half. Jacob Toppin picked up two fouls relatively early, and Oscar Tshiebwe also picked up two fouls. However, despite some ugly basketball and questionable lineups, Kentucky was able to take a 37-36 lead into the break, a highlight of which included a rare inbounds play...

John Calipari and Wildcats recap win over North Florida

Dylan Ballard - A Sea of Blue A great pre-Thanksgiving win. The Kentucky Wildcats needed a bounceback win after a really tough loss Sunday night against Gonzaga in Spokane, and that’s exactly what they got vs. the North Florida Ospreys, 96-56. Kentucky had huge games from multiple guys. Jacob Toppin had a career-high of 20 points and pulled in 10 rebounds. He co-led the team in scoring alongside Antonio Reeves, who had 20 as well, with 18 coming in the first half. Oscar Tshiebwe finished with 15 points and 16 boards. The Cats are off for a week before play in-state...

Tuesday Headlines: Kentucky in the new college hoops rankings

Tuesday Headlines: Kentucky in the new college hoops rankings

Time to regroup. As expected, the Kentucky Wildcats are taking a tumble in the latest college basketball rankings. The updated AP Top 25 Poll has the Cats down to No. 15 after previously checking in at No. 4. They fell to No. 13 in the latest Coaches Top 25 Poll. It’s still far too early in the season to press the panic button, but it’s become painfully clear that Kentucky is not a top 10 team right now. Kentucky also fell out of the ESPN Power Rankings, which only rank the top 16 teams, while Jeff Borzello had this blurb on the Cats. Kentucky’s reliance on Oscar Tshiebwe...

Kyle Tucker of The Athletic asked Oscar Tshiebwe why the offense has struggled and what it should look like. Tshiebwe responded, “Most of the time we don’t really run what Coach is asking us to...

Photo by William Mancebo/ Kentucky got manhandled. The Kentucky Wildcats drop their second game in a week, this time in Spokane to Gonzaga, 88-72. After a disastrous first half, Kentucky battled back in the second and got the game to as close as four points, but never could string together stops to slow the Zags down. Timme, Julian Strawther and Rasir Bolton, most notably, killed the Cats on the offensive end, combining for over 60 points. Oscar Tshiebwe, again led Kentucky with 20 points and 15 rebounds. In their first two games against tough competition, Kentucky has...

Oscar Tshiebwe is still awesome

James Snook-USA TODAY Sports The Wildcats suffered their second loss of the week. The No. 4 Kentucky Wildcats basketball team played their first of a six-game series with the No. 2 Gonzaga Bulldogs on Sunday night and came up well short of a win, falling 88-72 in Spokane, WA. Aside from Oscar Tshiebwe, the first half was a bit sluggish for Kentucky. Their star big man scored 14 points on 4-7 shooting while the rest of the Wildcats accounted for just 11 points and made only four of their 26 shot attempts. Kentucky played that bad on the road against the No. 2 team in the...
