On Friday at 7:00 PM (ET), the Kentucky Wildcats take on the Albany Great Danes to open up their regular season. Albany is a team that has made the NCAA tournament multiple times in recent years, so this “cupcake” team might not be as easy as a lot of people think. The same goes for NJIT, who Kentucky plays on Saturday. However, Vegas does have UK winning by 22 points, so it should still be a blowout. Keep in mind that Ulis, Briscoe, and Humphires have been seen in boots the last few days due to minor practice injuries. Ulis should be good to go, and the last I heard Briscoe and Humphries were listed as day-to-day. Hawkins is also back from his injury.
Check back on the site shortly after the game for a replay to appear–we’ll make a new post when it is ready.
