The Kentucky basketball team is set to head down to Starkville, Mississippi to take on the Mississippi State Bulldogs for the second time this year.
Before they boarded the plane, Kentucky assistant coach Tony Barbee, sophomore forward Nick Richards, and freshman guard Ashton Hagans spoke with the media about what to expect on the trip
Nick Richards talked about John Calipari’s funny dance on the sideline against South Carolina, why he loves defense so much, and how he has improved from the start of the year until now:
Ashton Hagans talked about what he brings to the table, whether or not he likes Nike’s new electronic shoes, and how his brother helped him become who he is as a player today.
Tony Barbee dove into the matchup a little bit closer, talking about whether or not he felt it was a trap game and what he thought about the Bulldog team as a whole. He also broke down his team’s defensive improvements and how great he thinks they can eventually be by the end of the season.
