Kentucky Wildcats DFS Snapshot
Tubby Smith returned to Kentucky, and Kellan Grady stole the show. Grady spoiled Smith's trip to Rupp Arena, making seven 3-pointers to lead No. 18 Kentucky to a 92-48 victory over High Point on Friday. Smith coached Kentucky for 10 years from 1997-2007, winning the NCAA title in 1998. The High Point alum was hired to coach the Panthers in March 2018. Kentucky raised a jersey in Rupp to honor Smith. But after the pregame ceremony, it was all Wildcats. Kentucky shot 58% from the field in the first half and led 43-25 at the break. High Point closed to 47-34 on Zach Austin's 3-pointer with 17:14 left, but Grady responded with three more 3s during an impressive burst.
