College basketball: No. 5 Kentucky Wildcats hold off Vermont

College basketball: No. 5 Kentucky Wildcats hold off Vermont

Apart from the Tigers being an average team and still getting slaughtered by the Jayhawks, the scariest part of the win is that it nearly felt as if Kansas was not even playing at full potential.

It appears that this Kansas is on par with most Kansas teams, but it also appears that this Kentucky team is not on par with most Kentucky teams in the early going. Kentucky is second with 48 SEC titles.

Kentucky and Kansas will be broadcast on the UK Sports Network. Phog Allen is No. 1 at 590-219. Kansas opened the season with a 92-56 rout of Tennessee State Friday night. Kentucky had one missed shot on one turnover, Vermont had three missed 3-pointers and two missed free throws.

Kansas vs. Kentucky news:If Kentucky's going to beat any of their good opponents (not just Kansas, but in this instance - Kansas), they've got to defend the 3-point shot better.

Pipkins finished with 23 points for UMass (1-1), while Aiken, a sophomore guard, led the Crimson (2-0) with eight rebounds. Mykhailiuk had 15 points in the opener against Tennessee State (11/10).

The model has taken into account Kentucky's struggles to start the season. Those days are gone, and last season KU's defense was only a hair better than the Big 12 average for points allowed per possession. Anthony Lamb followed with 15 points and grabbed seven rebounds. In the win, Graham scored 10 points, and dished out 12 assists in the game. "Where is a freshman team, playing on the road, against a team like that, where are we now". Additionally, Graham is one of 20 listed on the preseason Bob Cousy Point Guard of the Year Watch List and one of 32 on the Oscar Robertson Trophy Watch List, with both awards won by KU's Frank Mason III in 2016-17.

Calipari has made it clear coaching this team, which is his youngest at Kentucky, has been anything but a joy for him. The Wildcats are coached by former Kansas assistant John Calipari who is 251-53 in his ninth season at United Kingdom and 654-191 in his 26th season overall.

With only one Top 25 team losing in the first week of the men's basketball season, not much has changed about the Associated Press poll.

While things are always a bit of a work in progress early for John Calipari's freshmen-dominated lineups, these Wildcats appear vulnerable. Yet the Jayhawks were second only to Oklahoma State in points scored per possession thanks to great 3-point shooting and to KU's ability to generate a high number of shot attempts. The roster looks completely different, and through two games Hamidou Diallo leads the team with 17 points per game. "You've got to play good teams". She averaged just 6.1 points per game and shot 31 percent from 3 past year. Freshman forward Kevin Knox is second in scoring (11.5 ppg), rebounding (7.0 rpg) and with four steals. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 155 points.

In theory, a team that just lost three starters, including a national player of the year, should be at risk of taking a step back.

Gabby Williams and Napheesa Collier added 11 and 8 points, respectively, for UConn. Freshman forward Nick Richards (6.0 ppg, 3.5 rpg) has also started both games for United Kingdom this season.
