Calipari added that this isn’t a game to play someone like Washington unless he’s close to 100% healthy, so...

Will Shaedon Sharpe play for Kentucky this season?

Isamu Haynes-Sunayama - Sea of Blue If it doesn’t happen this season, there’s a good chance Sharpe never plays for the Wildcats. The question on the minds of many in the Big Blue Nation right now is will they ever see Shaedon Sharpe play for the Kentucky Wildcats. Leading into Tuesday’s game vs. Mississippi State, the buzz was growing that Sharpe could end up making his debut soon, perhaps as soon as that night.

Kentucky vs. Kansas preview, viewing info and predictions

Photo by Zach Bolinger/Icon Sportswire via There will be no such thing as a moral victory Saturday night against Kansas in the SEC/Big 12 Challenge. After grumblings this fall of a weak schedule, the Kentucky Wildcats are in the midst of two consecutive weeks with insanely challenging road trips. To go from playing No. 2 (at the time) Auburn on their home floor to traveling to Kansas for a date with the No. 5 Jayhawks is about as tough as it gets in college basketball. When you consider the fact that UK was also scheduled to play Ohio State in the CBS Sports Classic,...

Jordan Prather-USA TODAY Sports The sophomore big man has shown to be a great locker room presence With a culture of one-and-done that has been built for high-level recruits at Kentucky. Lance Ware doesn’t exactly fit that mold, but the role and path that Ware is carving out for himself is one that should put him on the path to success. Ware, a former top 40 recruit, hasn’t put up big numbers in his time at Kentucky, but the sophomore forward has shown the ability to come in and contribute when his number is called as he develops in Lexington.

UK Athletics The Wildcats win their first overtime game of the season, and it’s the 800th victory for one John Calipari. The Kentucky Wildcats scrape out a win against Mississippi State 82-74 in overtime, thanks to some late-game sharpshooting from Kellan Grady. Kentucky led by as many as 16 in the game and seemed to be cruising, but a trap game is a trap game and Kentucky let off the gas just slightly, and the Bulldogs caught fire from three.
