UK puts undefeated start to tropical test

UK puts undefeated start to tropical test

So far this season, No. 1 Kentucky has dominated the competition. But will John Calipari’s program be able to keep cruising without its second-leading scorer?

Isaiah Briscoe is likely to miss his third consecutive game when the Wildcats (6-0) battle Arizona State tonight. Even so, online sports book Bovada.lv gives UK odds of -3500 to prevail in the Bahamas. The Sun Devils enter Imperial Arena as +1500 underdogs.

Bet on Various NCAA Contests

On Friday, Kentucky sailed to a 111-76 victory over Tennessee-Martin. Freshman guard Malik Monk poured in a career-high 26 points, while De’Aaron Fox added 10. It was the second straight triumph of 23-plus points for the Wildcats.

Still, Briscoe remains hindered by a bruised lower back. Earlier this month, he paced the team in buckets in wins over Stephen F. Austin and Canisius. In the sophomore’s absence, expect Monk, Fox and forward Edrice Adebayo to continue to receive further looks.

ASU (4-2) may not boast quite the same firepower as the young men from Lexington, but Bobby Hurley’s squad certainly knows how to attack the rim. Having already knocked off Portland State, Cal Poly, Tulane and Citadel, the Sun Devils now get an opportunity to take on college basketball’s top dog. We anticipate a pretty tight tilt at the Atlantis Paradise Island resort.
