United Kingdom ready to start season vs. Utah Valley

United Kingdom ready to start season vs. Utah Valley

Utah Valley turned the ball over five times against a rare zone defense from Calipari.

The No. 5 Wildcats trailed Utah Valley by 12 points early in the second half of Friday's game at Rupp Arena before turning to their coach's most detested defensive set for a momentum change. All told, half of Vermont's six losses last season were to teams that reached the NCAA Sweet 16 - Purdue, Butler and Final Four qualifier SC.

That was UK Coach John Calipari while speaking in the postgame press conference on Friday night.

"I would say more it was us". "And I would imagine even after the game they walk away and say, you know what, we're going to be all right". They probably won't admit it, but I'm a person to admit my butterflies. "(He had) 13 rebounds and again he goes 3-13 and believe me, he missed a layup, layup, wide open layup, and stuff happens.

Kentucky (1-0) trailed 34-25 coming off a first half which saw it shoot a frigid 20.6 percent from the field.

Another steal and layup by Gilgeous-Alexander pulled United Kingdom within one, and a 3-pointer by Wenyen Gabriel gave the Cats their first lead (39-37) since the 5:54 mark of the first half. "We're still running and still fighting through the elevation that (John Calipari) wants us to make".

"I was happy with how Wenyen played and competed", Calipari said.

UK will also host Vermont on Sunday before traveling to Chicago to face No. 4 Kansas in the United Center. "You don't think they can wait to come in here when they saw what they saw?" "Vermont is a really good team". Others include sophomore forward Anthony Lamb, last year's leading scorer at 12.8 points per game; senior forward Peyton Henson (11.5) and junior guard Ernie Duncan (8.7).

The biggest move of the game was when Calipari went to a zone prior to his teams 18-0 run. That'll definitely be a good game for us. Baker, who underwent a surgical procedure on his knee in early October, could return to the court during SEC play. "You're going to have to play basketball". So, these two games will be a test for us for Tuesday.

A former name from the 1996 national championship team at the United Kingdom will be the head man on the opposing bench Friday night.
