"You've got to play good teams". "If you watch them, they create good shots for each other". Then I was like, 'who scheduled this game?
Kentucky has obviously had a ridiculous amount of talent at the guard spots and in the middle during the Calipari era, but they haven't always had that great player on the wing.
UVM converted 10 of its first 11 shot attempts to begin the second half, but United Kingdom kept pace and held onto a two-figure lead until the midway point of the final frame. However, he must do more Tuesday against Kentucky than in his previous Champions Classic games.
Without Preston, KU was forced to play with only two scholarship big men in a 92-56 victory over Tennessee State.
The challenge will be even more hard going up against Kentucky, a team that Self says is "1 to 5 is about as long as I can remember them" in coach John Calipari's nine seasons. Over the next three minutes, UVM fought back and took a 16-15 lead after Skyler Nash drained a three-pointer.
That being said, it is not going to get any easier for the Wildcats, who will face the Kansas Jayhawks next. P.J. Washington was completely missing in action in the season opener but turned into "a beast", as Calipari called him, against Vermont. Washington scored nine points in the first half and wasn't surprised by Vermont's late surge. I like Kentucky's length to make up for some of that and they have an advantage in that regard. "We knew they were good".Читайте также: Michael Owen's Karim Benzema remark has seriously annoyed Liverpool fans
"I would rather have won it by more, but to have to make plays at the end".
Washington and Diallo combined for nine of Kentucky's 14 field goals in the opening half. Quade Green has been good with the ball and Calipari likes his confidence but he has to improve defensively.
"We need to not let teams get comfortable and be in a total rhythm the whole time", Self said. "Everybody is a victor". "I have a pretty experienced group, a team that won a lot of games past year with the NCAA Tournament". Sophomore forward Anthony Lamb added 15. They got the defense and offense going and went on a 10-0 run going into the first timeout. And we're going to learn. "But I don't think it's going to be anything where we have to change too much". In the second half not quite as good.
West Virginia shot just 34.3 percent and made 12 three-pointers, but those came on 40 attempts. When the National Basketball Association season started recently, 27 former Kentucky players were on opening-day rosters, most of all colleges. "They will play fast, bang bang, shoot threes and their guard play's unbelievable". And they're veterans, he's got veterans on that team that have been there and done that and so it will be a hard game for us to win. The Wildcats following this game will not see another ranked team until December 23rd when they battle UCLA. That same list had Hamidou Diallo at No. 37, the top-ranked player on the team.
Vermont (0-1) was led by senior guard Trae Bell-Haynes with 16 points. Overall, the Catamounts are 0-3 against Florida, 0-2 against Georgia and Vanderbilt.
Vermont will spend next weekend at The Islands of the Bahamas Showcase, beginning with a first round matchup against Bradley on Friday (Nov. 17).При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
