Wildcats' season off to a roaring start

Wildcats' season off to a roaring start

Fresh off an emphatic triumph over No. 13 Michigan State, Kentucky’s ready to go back to work at Rupp Arena. Will Duquesne be able to keep things remotely close tonight?

The two schools meet at 9 p.m. ET in the Bluegrass State. Online sports book Bovada.lv gives John Calipari’s group odds of -1600 to remain unblemished. Conversely, the Dukes represent +900 underdogs.

Having ripped the Spartans by 21 points, the Wildcats now turn their attention to a mid-tier A-10 team. Jim Ferry’s troops boast victories over Loyola Maryland and Saint Francis. Most recently, however, Duquesne suffered a 78-77 defeat at the hands of Canisius.

UK, in fact, hosted those same Golden Griffins exactly one week ago. Isaiah Briscoe scored 21 points in that 93-69 demolition. Since then, the sophomore hasn’t stopped filling it up. He’s just one of many deadly offensive options, though, as Malik Monk and De’Aaron Fox also average in double figures.

Despite losing program mainstay Malcolm McMillan to graduation, the Dukes still do a fine job of getting up and down the floor. Running with No. 2 Kentucky, of course, requires an altogether different level of stamina. Look for the defending SEC champion to win rather handily.
