What a shoot out at Rupp Arena between Kentucky and Virginia Tech. Coming in we knew the Hokies could shoot the ball from three point range and they did on Saturday, knocking down 10 threes for the game. But probably not many expected UK to make outside shots themselves, in fact making more than Virginia Tech (11). Perhaps the biggest difference in the game was Kentucky forcing 19 Tech turnovers and holding them without a three in the second half until 2:40 remained in the game.
Prior to the match up, Coach Cal said his team would either win or learn in this game. Well, some might say they did both against Virginia Tech. Let’s take a look back at a big win at Rupp courtesy of KSR photographer, Dr. Michael Huang.
Is Quade Green now required to wear these Oakley protective goggles the rest of the season? Generally the first time a player has to wear any type of protective gear on their face, it bothers them immensely and many end up ditching them soon thereafter. Green on the other hand thrived in his new cool glasses finishing with 17 points, 5 assists, to only one turnover. After the game, the freshman point guard said the goggles are here to stay.
Every game Hamidou Diallo seems to be improving. Against Virginia Tech, the redshirt freshman hit some massive shots down the stretch to secure the win for Kentucky. Diallo finished with 20 points, going 4-7 from three point range.
Next Saturday Kentucky travels to New Orleans to take on UCLA. Until then, another week to get better in practice. For now, check out our complete game photo gallery on KSR’s Facebook page:
